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.

2009 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

problem #1

My client, peggy stephenson was a passenger in the front passenger seat of a 2009 Ford Taurus. She is paralyzed from the waste down and was unaware the seat heater was on for the entire 2 hour drive from phoenix skyharbor airport to sedona, Arizona. She subsequently discovered that she sustained 3rd degree burns on the bottom of her buttocks from the seat heater being on. I just read a section of the owner's manual for the car and there is a warning that says in substance that individuals with spinal cord injuries can sustain burns even when the seat heater is used at low temperatures when used for an extended period of time. This owners' manual warning was obviously not read by my client when she entered the rent-A-car. A seat that can burn someone is not acceptable under any circumstances. In addition, a warning should be posted inside the vehicle in plain view since car renters won't read the owner's manual. The car seat heater should be recalled before more injuries occur.
