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.

C-Max Energi

The Ford ev charge cord (Ford part no. FM58-10B706ac) that came with my 2013 cmax energi draws too much current and is a fire hazard. I just filed a vehicle complaint (no. 10904811) with photographs of the melted cord and burn marks on my outlets, describing the hazard in detail. It is likely that this cord or a similarly designed cord is used with the Ford Focus energi and Ford Fusion energi so this hazard should be investigated as an equipment defect and not just a vehicle defect.
