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.

While driving my vehicle it's approach sensor went off. I thought it was due to being in traffic but then it went off on a constant high pitch squeal. It lasted for about 3 minutes then shut off. Then when I was on the hands free telephone device through the Ford consal it went off again and I could not stop the very high pitch squeal and I had to pull off the road and put it in park. Then it happened while sitting at a stop sign. The squeal was so loud I wanted to take the vehicle to Ford and ask for a refund. I could not stop the sound and it sounded like my speakers were on high but I couldn't lower the volume. This was a new vehicle and just drove it off the lot about a month or less. It hasn't happened since.
