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.

My Ford E150, econo van came to a sudden stall when I was driving on high way. Once it got stalled, I L don't have steering, power and brake control. The van won't start and won't stay idle. Or running, but after like 20 times trying to restart the car, it started running again like normal. The sudden stalling happens more often when I was trying to make turns. Each time the engine stops, the check engine light, check tool light, and check gauge light came on. I took it to the dealer to have it serviced, they replaced the air flow sensors and cleaned the engine, ...costs about $1,000 in less than a week, the van suddenly stalls again. I almost got into an accident with on coming car while I was making a left turn. Again, I have no steering control and braking power. I took the van back to the dealer, and they replaced the electronic throttle body. Total replacement of about $500 the problem is solved so far, but it was definitely a very scary experience for me. This happened when the car has less than 4 years old and less than 47,000 miles. It is very hard for me to over come the safety concern of the car each time I stepped into this van.

Throttle sticks and does not fully return to idle. Must ride the brakes very hard to stop properly. Hove not crashed, but have had near misses. Dealer addressed once while under warranty, but will not address repeated problems, now that warranty has expired, without charging $80 diagnostic fee + repairs. Second issue.... side door fails to latch properly at the top. I am afraid it may fly open in a crash. Dealer has worked on it 5 times and it still does not close properly. Refuses to warrant it now.
