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 Hybrid

  • 9,046 miles


Ford C-max hybrid 2015 12V battery keeps going dead. Has happened 6 times in one year. Ford dealership has checked vehicle and found no issues. When battery goes dead, the car can not be started and has to be either towed or jump started. The issue has been happening when the car is just used for local travel less than 3 miles. After about a week of that type of driving the battery can not recover and depletes. This has been an ongoing issue with the C-max hybrid model of all years. The battery in the car is not large enough (capacity) to recover on repeated short trips. The car gives no indication when the 12V battery is low and may fail.
