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.

Grand Marquis LX 4.6L V8

I bought this car used with a 30 day warranty, 7 days passed warranty date I could smell an odor of anti freeze, it happened to be my heater core. Then I did my re-search on line to learn a little more about my FORD product. What the heck were you thinking" Ford " "Found On Road Dead" --->PLASTIC<---INTAKE MANIFOLD. (thank goodness they used metal screws) I'm very lucky to have learned of this problem before mine cracked. I ordered after market aluminum intake on line because the 9 automotive parts stores in my area only had the plastic ones. TAKE THESE THINGS OFF THE SHELF. I can't even imagine a mechanic would re install another plastic intake. I've always been a Chevrolet person with no probs, I don't know what I was thinking? I only paid $5,000 and now another $1,100, by the time im done I can call it my Cadillac. Thanks for letting me express my anger.
