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.

2008 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

problem #2

Taurus 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I had complied with recall# 04V332000 for my 2001 Ford Taurus with having the protective shields installed on my front springs. Recently, with my wife driving to work, the front left spring fractured. Luckily, my wife was driving to work using backroads and not on the freeway. Because the shields were installed and should have protected the springs from corrosion due to road salts, I think that this should be looked at as this temporary repair did not work. In addition, all other states that did not have the shields installed are being offered a 10 year/150,000 mile warranty. This would be helpful in snow states as well. My vehicle only has 90,000 miles. I have contacted Ford and they are unwilling to take action. Thanks.
