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.

Taurus 6-cyl

The contact owns a 2012 Ford Taurus. The contact stated that the headlights were not bright enough while driving at night. The vehicle was taken to a dealer. The dealer stated there was nothing they could adjust to brighten the headlights. The contact called the manufacturer and filed a complaint. The failure mileage was 7,800..... updated 03-28-13 the consumer stated the headlights have a very sharp short cut off that limits visibility greatly. The cut off projects a black line that floats up and down on the windshield that is hypnotic. The failure is with the dim lights. Updated 04/18/2013
