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.

All doors are closed but "door ajar" notification is present prohibiting doors from locking and interior lights from dimming. This is a safety issue whereby the interior lights are distracting during night-time driving.

The contact owns a 2011 Ford Edge. The contact stated that while driving at approximately 60 mph, a burning odor emitted inside of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic, who stated there was an electrical problem that originated from the fuse box. The failure caused the battery to fail. The battery was replaced on two separate occasions however, the failure persisted. In addition, the rear lift gate failed to release and opened independently. The front driver's side seat belt would not latch securely. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 61,000.

1) drive door ajar light in dash will not go out. Door will not properly shut. Extremely unsafe! doors will not lock with this warning/light on as well as the lights inside vehicle stay on for an extended amount of time (up to 20 min) until they go to sleep. Which is draining the battery. 2) passenger seat belt locks up with the least bit of movement. So tight that it severely uncomfortable. To find comfort the seat belt has to constantly be unlatched and re latched while vehicle is in motion / driven. Unsafe! when researching the door ajar issue it has become very clear that Ford has a major defect with this part that has been installed. This should not cost consumers over $500 out of pocket to repair or put their live in danger due to their neglect to repair their product that was defected when manufactured.

Rear seat center seat belt latch is in a location that is extremely hard to use and when the seat belt does get buckled, it is so uncomfortable that I have had people unbuckle. You actually sit right on the latch when it is buckled. There really should be a fix available so that the latch end of the center buckle can be moved out of the way of where you sit. I can't imagine how a person with a car seat would try to use this.
