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

I had 2 incidents were I needed to stop quickly. The car failed to stop and just skidded and slid. The back tires locked up and fishtailed. The tires were burning rubber and again the car did not stop, just slid. One time I was only going 40 mph, the other time 80 mph. In the incident going 80 mph there was a Goodyear, before a complete stop needed to happen. At this point the car was still traveling approximently 40 mph, causing me to run through a stop sign. Thank goodness nobody was coming otherwise this could have been a trerrible accident. The other incident a child walked out on a red light and again the car just still just slid and I could not stop...he jumped back on the sidewalk and again everyone was fine. I took the car to the dealership and they told me nothing was wrong. I refused to leave with that car, which I only bought 3 months ago. I in turn took a $3,000 loss because I refused to drive it again. I bought a Chevy and during the test drive I went 80 mph and slammed on the brakes, there was no sliding or burning of rubber, the car just came to a stop the way it should.
