Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

It seems like after heavy rain water collects somewhere within the dash and runs down into the front passenger floorboard of the car. It collects several inches of water that sits in the floorboard and I have to soak it up with a lot of towels. I keep a garbage bag in the floorboard to keep from ruining my carpet which already smells real bad as a result of this issue. I have read numerous complaints about this very problem on other Ford Taurus' going back to at least 2001 models. Has there been a recall? I read in the complaints that it caused their blower motor to need to be replaced. I would like to get this problem taken care of asap but feel that since this is an ongoing issue with the Ford Taurus then Ford should recall it and they should repair it at no cost. They should also be required to look at the blower motor and anything else it could have effected and replace if needed. I would also like to request they clean my carpet and get the bad smell out of it. I was told to refer to a related recall under 03V08700 and complaint #10184014. Thanks!
