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.

2011 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

problem #2

Taurus 6-cyl

  • 20,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

My 2011 Taurus sho has 20 inch rims and an all-wheel drive system, but only after 20,000 I have to change my tires because they wear off in the inside corners on all four tires. It is like if the wheels are slightly slanted andthey wear off only on that area. Ford has knowledge of this situation and have made me take the car for alignment, tire pressure and tire rotation every 3,000 miles, but this has not helped at all. The car has had 4 set of tires in the last 54,000 and they insist it is not caused because of car deffects. If I am not constantly checking the tires because I fear that I am going to get aflat or could explode in the middle of the highway and cause an accident. Pelase help me. I have tried everything possible with them and I am in the process of filing a complaint against them, but anything that you can do will be deeply appreciated.

Taurus 6-cyl

  • 700 miles
I was driving on an interstate highway in the left lane. Traffic caused me to brake hard and turn the wheel slightly to avoid collision. Moments later, I get a low tire pressure warning. When I exit to a gas station, the tire has become completely flat and is off the rim. It is the front passenger side tire. The tire that received the most force from braking. It appears the force caused a break in the seal with the rim. Subsequently the tire and possibly the rim were damaged. The car is a 2011 Taurus with 700 miles on it. The dealership is already taking the position that this scenario could not happen unless the tire was already low on pressure such as from a puncture. I am stating the tire was not low on pressure before the braking incident. There was no low pressure indication until immediately after the braking incident.
