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.

Ford Crown Victoria fuel pump failures.erratic fuel pump operation and subsequent failure resulting in loss of power and vehicle stopping in roadway. 17 sheriff's deputy patrol cars have had sudden fuel pump failures since 6/1/2010. All 17 fuel pumps have had to be replaced. Ford replace 4 in warranty. In the past 3 years we have had to replace approximately 100 fuel pumps in Crown Victoria police cars. Ford always blames the fuel when the car is out of warranty but replaces the pumps when in warranty. Ethanol in fuel is the root of the problem. Ford should design a pump that can pump ethanol and last at least 100,000 miles. As with any sudden loss of power in the roadway there is the risk of a and accident due to sudden increase steering effort required, sudden deceleration without brake light activation. This is definitely a safety hazard.
