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 F150 2011 3.5L eco boost motor that failed to accelerate after filling up with gas at a rest stop. I was near Chicago on interstate 80/90 I tried to pull out using the acceleration ramp traffic was extremely heavy so needed to use the eco boost power when the engine started to shutter and the service engine light keep flashing on then off. I had my wife with me and we had to pull over to side of the road because the motor lost power. I could not get onto the road because of the traffic. There was a lot of semi-truck on the road that day and this almost ended up in a collision. I had been driving in the rain for about 1.5 hours before pulling into the service area. I call my local Ford dealer they said they have been getting a lot of reports about this problem. I ask if Ford has a recall about this problem they said Ford has no recalls. I call Ford customer service after that and they said they will open a case study about this problem, but as of now they cannot do anything about this problem. I even told them this was a high liability problem and what is it going to take someone to get killed before Ford fixes the problem. I can't believe with all the people having the same problem I am having and this is a 2011 tuck they can't resolve the problem sense we are getting ready to go into 2014.
