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

Jul 052009


  • 23,000 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Ford Taurus. While driving 35 mph, the windshield wiper gear box suddenly failed during a very heavy thunderstorm. As a result, the wipers stopped working and the vehicle had to be pulled over due to poor visibility. The wiper blades and arms were working normally. The contact believes that the failure was due to a mechanical error. The vehicle has not been inspected by the dealer. The current and failure mileages were 23,000.
