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.

2006 Ford Crown Victoria Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 272006

Crown Victoria 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles


2006 Ford Crown Victoria purchased in June 2006. Problem occurred about 1 mointh after purchase (late June). I was driving out of my apt complex, when I stopped at the gate, the engine suddenly went crazy. It was as if it had max throttle except my foot was on the brake not the accelerator pedal. If I had not had my foot on the brake, I would have crashed into the gate. I put the control into neutral and the engine continued to race for about 6-7 seconds, then it stopped and it was like nothing had happened. I took it to the dealer and they ran diagnostics. Nothing wrong. So I said it was a fluke. But now 2 days ago (12-27-06), it happened again. I took it to the dealer and they ran diagnositics - again nothing wrong.
