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.

The "door ajar" sensor is making a false reading that constantly says the driver side door is open when in fact it is not. Due to the car "thinking" the door is open, you can not lock the doors while driving. A child falling out of an unlocked door or a car jacking because of this issue is a huge safety concern. A simple google search for this issue will show that this is a very common problem with many Ford vehicles. To have the sensor repaired cost anywhere from $250 to $400 which is most likely why Ford continues to let people drive these unsafe vehicles.

Driver side door ajar light remains on when door is properly closed. Seems to be a common issue w/Ford Edge door latches.

Driver: 83 year old woman... new auto: Ford Edge 2012, no injuries, vehicle damage approx $2000 no property damage..... problem: Lady stepped on accelerator rather than brake.... reason: The brake pedal at rest is higher than the accelerator pedal at rest. The driver is used to an older (Chrysler 2009) vehicle which there was not an appreciable difference in pedal height, stepped on the accelerator pedal, thinking she was stepping on the brake.... resolution: Discussing the incident, the woman was seated in the Ford Edge and asked to see if she felt a difference in height of the brake vs accelerator pedals. She did, and has since practiced going between pedals, lifting her foot to access the brake, rather than merely sliding her foot to the left........ it is this writers opinion that many of the unexplained accidents where a person, especially when an elderly person is driving, has mistook the accelerator for the brake is due to the height of pedal difference................. it might be wise to make aware this problem to manufacturers and the public......... thanks
