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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: Say what you will about the styling of the Ford Edge, but the bottom line is owners seem to love this vehicle. That is, of course, except in the case of it's dangerous, worrisome and unexplained issues with random engine stalling.

Our data suggests an early defect trend, as owners of the 2007-2008 models have started posting their accounts of what happens when you're driving down the road and the engine just stops. Some at high speed, some at low speed but always a random shutdown of the engine, electrical and power steering.

Time will tell if this becomes a widespread issue, but there's no drying the seriousness of the problem. With that in mind, we're flagging the Edge with our "Beware of the Clunker" rating until the situation improves.

My 2008 Ford Edge has tire pressure monitors which indicates my tire pressure is dangerously low when I change rims and tires to my snow tires twice a year. When I purchased the tires from les schwab tires I was assured that they where able to reset this system if necessary. Apparently this is not the case and the system must be reset by a Ford service. Last year Ford reset the system which takes about one minute, when I brought my car in for 5000 mile service.. this year I was told by lake city Ford in coeur D alene, id when I brought my car in for service that there is a $24.95 charge to reset the tpm's. knowing human nature it is my belief that if the consuming public has to pay $25 twice a year to reset the system the advantage of having tpm will not be of any benefit since most people will simply not have the system reset and ignore dash board warnings of potential tire failure. This is not in the best interest of public safety and potentially very dangerous. A safety system so important and a one minute reset process to reset it does not seem logical to discourage it's benefits by changing $24.95.
