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.

2005 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

2005 Ford Taurus sedan - rear truck will release while vehicle is in motion. We bought the used vehicle in the summer of 2009, on at least six occasions, the rear truck lid opened while the vehicle was in motion. The vehicle is equipped with an internal release button, a remote release button and an internal safety release string. On each occasion neither button were activated. No clicking sound was heard on each occasion. The Ford dealership had not received any reports of this. Right front (passenger) strut system - on completion of an alignment of Ford Taurus, the right front (passenger) strut system was deemed broken. All other suspension systems were aligned within the recommended safety requirements, the right front strut system could only be aligned just outside of the maximum safety requirements, and no further adjustment can be made without replacement.
