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.

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Vehicle: 2010, Ford Escape, with automatic transmission. Safety complaint: There is no illumination on the gear selector for models that have an automatic transmission with floor shifter and console. When driving the vehicle at night there is not an illuminated indication to signify what gear the vehicle has been placed into. There is a very good possibility that in a dark vehicle you could easily mistake placing the vehicle in either reverse or drive and cause an accident because you are expecting to go in a different direction. This seems like a basic feature that Ford Motor Company should recall vehicles to install an illuminated indicator that operates with all other instrumentation lights.
