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.

Purchased 2013 Ford Taurus limited new from dealer. A month after purchase, noticed terrible vibration in vehicle at highway speeds. Dealership tried to blame it on bad tires, which they replaced. Didn't solve the problem. Spoke to Ford cuts service with no resolution. Drove 2 other used Taurus' with similar results.

While driving, the wheel fell off the vehicle and the vehicle swerved. This occurred at a low speed (10mph) upon more closely inspecting the vehicle, it appears that the axle was broken off of the vehicle. I have a photo of the broken piece of the vehicle, as well as photos of the broken situation of the vehicle. This car was rented through budget rental car Agency, and I do not know if responsibility also lies with the rental car company as well.

While bringing my wife home from work, down a city street, she yelled out to me to watch out...deer! automatically, I looked to the right in people yards and wooded are, then left, only to find them just slight to my right form the center of our car. At this point I knew the brakes were in great shape. However these halogen projection headlights have a decent pattern, but are like having two candles. Why is it my 2006 Mercury montego had factory hid headlights and now 7 years later they went backwards, as other cars are now using led headlights" this was not the only time. The next time my wife noticed a person walking in the road, why who knows" except I am not happy with what I think is politics Ford is doing. These lighting system is so bad if I had the high beams on while driving with on coming traffic nobody blinks at me. (I know this should not be done for safety reasons, but I had to prove to myself that it's not just me due to the change over from hid to halogen lighting. Ps) today March 14 2014, I wrote thru the website planet feedback to the CEO of Ford over this issue. I already mentioned this on surveys Ford gave me when I purchased the auto, and mentioned it to the dealership.

My 2013 Ford Taurus sel has terrible vibration at all speeds and does it everyday Ford had the engineer come out 8 to 10 times they even keeper my 2013 Taurus sel for 3 weeks and called us and told us they were going to buy it back because they have tried six sets of tires and wheels and they don't know what's wrong with it well they keep it another week and me and my wife to out to find out what's going on they hand us the keys and say that Ford is not taking it back and they can't figure out what's wrong with it. The crazy thing about it the engineer went to three other dealer ships and could not find another 2013 Taurus sel that road smooth he went to oxmoor Ford and got another 2013 Taurus just like ours and was bringing it to the dealer where mine was to compare them and when he got to our dealer this is what he said to these are his exact words ( it felt like the wheels were going to fly off on the way up to our dealership he said he thought he was going to have to have it towed to the dealer because the vibration was so bad and was a brand new one from another dealer and this is the exact words out of Ford engineer and he told us Ford has to buy it back because they are so bad he even put in his report for Ford to buy it back and Ford screwed us. Ford has a mayor problem with the 2013 Ford Taurus sel vibration and needs to be held accountable. Please help an investigation needs to be done its very bad thanks.
