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.

Edge

The vehicle was in motion in moderate traffic going approximately 45mph when the engine unexpectedly shutoff and the accelerator became non-responsive. Was able to carefully coast the vehicle to the shoulder, put in park, and restart the vehicle. Extremely concerned that this happened as I'm traveling out of state with my family on vacation. We purchased this vehicle brand new within the last 60 days and it has less than 2,000 miles on it. We thought we were getting rid of a lemon vehicle when we traded in for this, but although our last vehicle had a lot of issues it wasn't nearly as concerning or dangerous as this 1 issue with the Ford Edge. There should be an immediate nationwide recall.

I was driving a rental Ford Edge and slowed down for a traffic signal. Without warning, the accelerator would not work and SUV was moving at < 10 miles/hr without any acceleration. On contacting the roadside assistance from rental company, I was told that this can happen with this vehicle at 10-12,000 mile mark. I was told to turn off the ignition and turn off after few seconds and it should work. On doing so, I was able to drive for few blocks but the vehicle stalled again. There was no warning on SUV's screen. I was also told by the tow truck operator that he has towed few vehicles with similar issues.
