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.

Escape 4WD

Purchased 1st Escape 6-7-02. Dealer had car 7 out of 11 days for stalling issues and hatch lock repairs. Dealer replaced vehicle with new vehicle 6-25-02. On 6-26-02 new car stalled on deceleration between 6-6:30 pm going down an incline on pearl drive. On 6-28-02 car stalled on deceleration around 5 pm on downhill slope of muegge road. The car was placed in neutral and restarted immediately. Contacted Ford customer service to request all tsb tests be performed by dealer at one time to remedy issues. Am currently waiting to hear back from Ford to see if that is going to be possible.
