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.

My car would not start at my home. I had my car towed to my car repair shop and was told I need a new fuel injector. I had that replaced. Cost was over 1200.

I noticed what I thought was an exhaust leak on the interior of my 2005 Ls, so I raised the hood didn't smell anything. I did however notice that their was oil spots in my driveway. I took the car immediately to the repair shop and had the top half of the engine resealed. Two days later I started the car and after letting it warm up; I got in and the smell was still there. I took it back and after 4 hours of labor the sniffer alarm sounded on the fuel tank. While searching for a repair the mechanic discovered the Ford recall notice 05S29, NHTSA campaign id number : 05V113000. So I went my Lincoln dealer and they told me that there was "no recall notice for a leaking fuel tank for the Ls." Not satisfied I took my repair documentations to a Ford dealer, and they stated that there was a recall, but my car was not included. Note: This is where I really got ticked off. There is a recall for the problem I have, but because the research was improperly performed I need to pay Ford $1600 to replace a tank that would otherwise be free. It's obvious that the research is faulty...
