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.

2012 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

Hydraulic lift supports suddenly failed when lifting the trunk lid one day in July 2016. Car has 116,000 miles, purchased new. Took to original dealer who said he would install if I could find some. Parts are sold out at every auto parts store I can find, and also sold out at the vendors for the auto parts stores. If there are none to be found, is this a problem?
