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.

Taurus 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,000 miles


Purchased a 2005 Taurus in December 2004. At 1000 miles over the 36000 mile bumper to bumper warranty the transmission went out. Returned car to the dealership and was treated very poorly. Told different information on repair cost, but Ford will not fix the car without us paying a huge portion of the $2000 repair.

problem #1

Nov 252005

Taurus 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 0 miles
On the 1st start of the day (every day), for one-two minutes, when I push down on the brake, the car will move slightly forward. There is a clunking noise from the engine area, and the rpms decrease when the brake pedal is pressed. This occurs in park or neutral. The dealer had an engineer from Ford look at it said he did not know what is causing it, but tried other Taurus and saw the same problem.
