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.

2005 Ford Crown Victoria Owner Comments

problem #2

Mar 022006

Crown Victoria 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,236 miles


While making a turn the 2005 Crown Victoria suddenly accelerated, even though the driver had his foot on the brake. There is a possibility the brake and accelerator pedals are too close together, allowing the driver to apply both pedals at once.

problem #1

Jul 012005

Crown Victoria 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,500 miles
During normal braking, on 2 separate occasions, my father and I both experienced unintended acceleration while braking. This was caused by the fact that the accelerator pedal on our rented Ford Crown Victoria is too close to, and at the same level as, the brake pedal, causing both pedals to easily be pressed at the same time. Excessive force on the brake pedal was the only action possible to prevent accidents in both cases.
