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.

2008 Ford Crown Victoria Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 012008

Crown Victoria 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 11,000 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Ford Crown Victoria. While attempting to depress the brake pedal at speeds less than 50 mph, the vehicle would accelerate instead of attempting to stop. The dealer could not find any failures and the issue recurred several times afterwards. While driving 72 mph with the cruise control activated, the vehicle suddenly accelerated to 90 mph until the cruise control was disengaged. The manufacturer advised him to take the vehicle to the dealer for installation of a monitoring system; however, the dealer still could not determine the cause of the failure. The dealer also stated that he was depressing both the brake and accelerator pedals simultaneously, which may have caused the failure. The contact stated that was impossible because the pedals were inches away from each other. The failure mileage was 11,000 and current mileage was 15,460. Updated 09/25/08 updated 09/26/08.
