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.

My wife was on her way to a business meeting. Vehicle was stopped at a red light. Started to turn right, hit accelerator pedal and vehicle barely moved. Lost power, could only go 5 mph. Wrench light came on, as did AWD. Created traffic hazzard as vehicles backed up behind on city street. Creeped to a parking area and had vehicle towed to dealer for evaluation and repair. Cause was powertrain control module (PCM) which was not replaced (following current Ford policy), but reprogrammed, meaning this could happen again in an even more dangerous setting, such as proceeding through an intersection or on a highway.

Driving down the road and the vehicle suddenly went to idle. Had to coast to a stop on the side of the road. The car was still idling but when I tried to give it gas, nothing happened. I shut the car off, restarted and it worked fine. Approx. 10 miles later, did the same thing. Car only has 9,200 miles. I drive the interstate daily and this is going to be very dangerous if it happens there. Will be at the dealer at 9:00am sharp tomorrow.
