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

problem #3

I have a 2005 Ford Taurus. Whenever there is moderate to heavy rainfall, water leaks into the passenger side under the dash, soaking the floor and the blower motor will not work. While driving the windshield fogs over and I cannot get the blower to turn on, causing visibility issues while driving on the road. This is happening to a lot of people, this should be investigated and a recall issued.

It was raining... I had the windshield wipers on. Parked and went to turn off wipers. Would not turn off, and began to smoke. I removed fuse. Replaced fuse... began to smoke again. Windshield wiper motor blown. Now I have noticed that car is having difficulty shifting. Today I had a diagnosis done, transmission needs replaced.
