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.

It is shameful that Ford Motor Company and you are already aware of this problem with the transmissions and torque converter on the 2006 and the 2007 Ford tauruses. I reported my husband's 2006 Ford Taurus transmission problem to you in 2011. We delivered our son's 2007 Ford Taurus to the transmission repair shop today. Again the transmission repairman told us the same exact thing - that the torque converter and transmissions are defective in those year models and more year models in the Ford Taurus. He knows there should be a recall from 1996 til now on the Ford Taurus defective transmission. The car comes to a complete stop anywhere and it will not go forward or backward(my husband's car did this). We delivered our son's when we noticed at about 45 miles per hour the car jumps just like my husbands 2006 Ford Taurus did just before it stopped suddenly in the road. Your failure to fix this problem is negligence and Ford Motor Company is responsible for this. How many people have to die to fix this problem? it is very dangerous and fixable.
