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.

I came to normal stop at 4 way stop sign. Started across road and vehicle to my left failed to yield right of way and I had to panic stop. As I hit brakes for panic stop, engine RPM went to max, pulling car forward while I was hard on brakes. I missed violator by only inches. As soon as I let off brakes, engine RPM returned to normal. Ford dealer has previously concluded I hit gas instead of brakes. This is totally absurd in every instance of this event. Had I hit the brakes in this latest incident, I would have totaled the car I was trying to avoid. I am reporting this incident (one of at least a half dozen previous incidents) because this was so close to an accident. In past incidents I have stopped "brake/increase RPM" by simply cutting off ignition. This reported incident happened so fast, I had no time to cut ignition, nor would this have been a good time to cut ignition.

While driving the vehicle at highway speeds (60-70mph) going uphill, while making a sharp turn left or while rocking the steering wheel to make the rear of the car sway slightly to the left, there is a surge and complete loss of power for 1/2 second. This causes a surge/jolt feeling in the vehicle like the vehicle transmission or engine has lost all power. If you try to sway the vehicle immediately a 2nd time nothing happens. If you wait several minutes and sway the rear end again there is again a heavy surge and loss of power. I also observed the tac-ometer show a loss of power for a brief moment. If you are going up hill at highway speeds and the vehicle sways to the right or you swerve the steering wheel to make the vehicle swerve to the right (body rock to the right) nothing will ever happen. It is only on left body rock while at highway speeds on an incline. There are no trouble codes. There is no indicator light or dash flash or buzzer. Nothing happens and nothing triggers a diagnostic code. All codes are clear. There are two bulletins posted on the NHTSA website. 1. id# 10024695 & 2. id# 10039053. When calling Ford @ 800-392-3673 they are unable to provide any information or help regarding this matter or the bulletins mentioned. They advise there are no bulletins at all for my vehicle. This problem started when the vehicle was brand new. The dealership in California was unable to diagnose the problem because it was intermittent. Now at 54,000 miles the problem happens 8 or 10 times in a 30 mile trip. It is very troubling that the vehicle loses power and surges. It causes a panic in the passenger compartment when happening!

This is the fourth event of increasing engine RPM when depressing brake to stop at a stop sign. As in two other events, no traffic was approaching so I had immediately went from a stop (noting increasing engine RPM) to removing foot from brake pedal to go to gas pedal to proceed on past stop resulting in the increasing engine RPM being a non-event in terms of engine racing out of control. Not so with a third event in which I stopped at an automatic gate and had to stay stopped with engine RPM again increasing and continuously to increase to the point that I had to lock down on brake to keep from being pulled into the gate and was able to completely stop by cutting off the ignition. This third racing out of control was reported by confirmation number (ODI) 10355856. This third event resulted in the vehicle manufacturer asking me to take car to local dealer where car was left for a day with result of 'no trouble found' and service advisor's opinion "you had foot on brake and gas at the same time". not so. I had specifically checked for this condition at time of attempted stop. This third event occurred 9/15/2010.
