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.

Crown Victoria

  • 116,000 miles


Unintended acceleration: I was in heavy city traffic. Without warning, my engine started to race full speed. (in a Crown Victoria, that's very fast). The only way to slow it was to push the brake as hard as I could. Finally got it pulled over and stopped. Even in neutral, the engine raced full speed. Very frightening!!! a man came from tipton Ford in nacogdoches, tx and took it to shop. They installed (1-2W7Z*9F715 valve asy - throttle air by-pass). Charged me $278!! I have never had any mechanical repairs to this car. I have always trusted this car to be safe. Now that security has been taken away. I understand there is a lawsuit involving this problem. If so, I want my money back !!
