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.

I was on the expressway the car reduced speed, until it stopped which almost made someone run into the back of me. The windshield blades do not function, the interior lights will not come on all the time. Ive taken my car to several shops they were not able to tell me what's wrong with the vehicle stating the problem does not show up on the diagnostic machine. I am to the point of being afraid of driving my car, I never know when or if it will function properly.

Taurus 6-cyl

When turning steering wheel, at times an object can be heard rolling around in steering wheel. Also, mileage light is not lighted. It can only be seen at night when dark out. This has been a problem for the last 2 to 3 years. I took vehicle to a St. Cloud, mn Ford dealer on May 22, 2015, to see if the problem may be part of the recent airbag recall. Dealer advised that there is no recall on vehicle and the problem may be unrelated to recall.

The contact owns a 2006 Ford Taurus. The contact stated that the rear brake lights work intermittently. The vehicle was taken to the dealer on several occasions, but they could not diagnose the cause of the failure; therefore, they did not replace any parts. The contact will take the vehicle to another dealer for a second opinion. The failure mileage was 32,000 and current mileage was 37,000.
