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.

2006 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

Taurus 6-cyl

  • 40,000 miles


I have a 2006 Ford Taurus. I used to live in Texas and moved to buffalo area this summer. This morning when I drove my car out of the parking lot and onto the street road, the driver door suddenly opened by itself. Then I was trying to close the door while I was trying but all failed. Then I had to pull my car in the nearby parking space and stopped the car. Eventually after trying quite a few times, I could close the door. This morning was pretty cold and below freezing temperature. After this incident, I checked with some of my colleagues and friends. Quite a few people who drive Ford Taurus have experienced exactly the same issue with the driver door before. Further I did some research on internet and found many complaints on the door closing issue of Ford Taurus during cold winter.
