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.

Re: NHTSA item number 10021216 most of the vehicles in the dcas managed fleet, as well as most of the vehicles at dept of correction have this condition occurring. This leads to deactivation of the ABS system, and a lack of safe braking under certain conditions. Ford will not extend any warranty consideration once the vehicles have come off warranty. The city of New York is being charged approximately $1,500 for each vehicle needing out of warranty service. Considering the safety nature of this failure, I think Ford should have a recall.

Brake pedal and accelerator pedal too close together and same height leading too two occurrences of catching accelerator during braking, one causing several hundred dollars damage.
