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.

The contact owns a 2007 Ford Taurus. While driving 25 mph the flange for the catalytic converter fractured off. He made an interim repair to resume normal vehicle operation. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and a repair kit installed at an expense of $200. The manufacturer designed a repair kit because the flange for the catalytic converter was welded improperly. When the exhaust manifold fails as in this condition, the risk for fire hazard was increased. The failure and current mileages were 51,000. Updated 03/04/10 the consumer stated the flange separated from the catalytic converter pipe which allowed it to drop to the ground. Updated 06/18/10.
