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.

2010 Ford Escape. Consumer states vehicle has a fast idle speed, ignition key lock problem and a soft brake problem. The consumer requested to have the idle speed lowered to 500 RPM. The dealer stated that could not be done because the idle was set at the factory. The consumer stated the vehicle would roll forward and backwards due to the fast idle speed. He almost hit the back of a building because the vehicle rolled back when he started the vehicle in reverse. The key was difficult to turn in the ignition which made it difficult to start the vehicle.
