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

Crown Victoria 8-cyl

2008 Ford Crown Victoria has a problem with unintended acceleration. The consumer stated the vehicle accelerated 3 times with no warning. The consumer stated the problem happened when the vehicle was started and placed into drive and driven approximately 150 feet. The RPM's increased without the accelerator being applied. The consumer applied the brake and the RPM's returned to normal after about 30 seconds. The cruise control was not engaged. In June 2009, the consumer took the vehicle to the dealer and they replaced the throttle body and air intake. However, on August 13, 2009 the vehicle accelerated suddenly as it did previously. The consumer took the vehicle back to the dealer and they found 2 pin holes in the basic wiring harness. The consumer was informed the pin holes were a result of the wiring harness being installed upside down which caused tension and rubbing on the wire insulation until the bare wires were exposed which caused a short in the wiring harness. The dealer repaired the wires, but did not replace any parts. To date no further problems have occurred.
