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.

problem #1

Grand Marquis LSE V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 46,500 miles


4th gear out on transmission

I was shocked to have a dealer maintained car, a gentle mature driver, end up with a transmission problem out of warranty.

I could not get any help from Ford Motor company; there were no area representatives in the area of a major San Francisco area city.

I am now in the market for a new car. Without extended warranty coverage I cannot trust Ford Motor company to do the right thing. That of course should not be a necessary cost. Japanese cars have shown that reliability can be achieved if manufacturers pay attention to detail in the production process.
