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.

The contact owns a 2006 Ford E-150. The contact stated that while driving approximately 40 mph, the vehicle started shaking uncontrollably and hesitated. The vehicle was taken to a dealer, who diagnosed that the throttle body and motor assembly needed to be repaired. The vehicle was been repaired for the same failure three times but the failure was recurring. The vehicle was not further been repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 44,373.

The throttle on my 2006 Ford van began sticking at approx. 55,000 miles. This is not a pedal issue, it was the throttle butterfly itself that was sticking. The problem resulted in extended stopping distance and finally forced me to run a red light, but did not cause an accident (for me) it would also cause the van to rev up very high when first started, even when no gas had been applied. You also had to hold your foot very firmly on the brake at a stop, or the vehicle would accelerate to approx. 40 mph. I took it to the dealer repeatedly (city Ford in cartersville ga) and argued with the service manager all the way up to the owner of the dealership, and they refused to fix it because they considered it normal wear. A sticking throttle, particularly on a vehicle which uses electronic throttle control, vs a cable should never be "normal". I argued the issue repeatedly with the dealer and also with the Ford zone manager, but finally, for the safety of my family, I was forced to purchase a replacement throttle assembly and swap it out at my own cost ($150).

E-150 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 0 miles
On several occasions while braking my foot made contact with the acceleration pedal instead of stopping the truck accelerated and almost caused a collision. The last occurrence put me through an intersection where I barley avoided a side impact collision. The brake pedal travel exceeds the level at which my foot can make contact with the gas pedal. My truck has less than 20,000 miles, the dealership told me there was nothing wrong with the brakes.
