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.

I have a 2001 E 1-50 van, I am always getting a brake to the floor issue this has caused me some scary incidents at times, I have had everything replaced that I can think of but still having this issue, I get the run around with Ford saying this is normal to me this is not normal when I have to pump my brakes at times, before I stop also sitting at lights I can feel my pedal goes to the floor this is not normal something is wrong, somewhere other people have had this issue cause I tried to see if anyone else is having this seems a lot are here are some stories on this issue I'm tired of tossing money into this issue, I don't want to get into a accident and kill myself or someone else, I think this problem needs to be addressed. I'm sure not the only one having this issue.

Have had the vehicle since late 2001 within 5 months had to be taken in for brake problems due to vibration when stopping. Since then the van has had the rotors replaced once a year with them being turned twice. Brake pads are needing to be replaced every 5 to 6 months. I have called Ford each time as well as the dealer. Both have said that this is a common problem they have with these vehicles. I don't pull anything with my van and I am not hard on the brakes. They told me it was because the front end is heavy.
