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 at highway speeds (roughly 70 mph) my vehicle completely turned off with no warning and said "engine fault. Service now". by the grace of god I did not get rear ended. I successfully restarted the vehicle and made it home. The same thing happened the next morning, this time on city streets going roughly 20 mph during rush hour. Against, I was beyond lucky to have not gotten injured or worse and there was no warning again.

I was cruising at about 35-40mph on city street. Suddenly the motor practically quit. The vehicle immediately slowed down to about 5 mph. The "stability control" warning light came on. Luckily, there were no vehicles behind me on that 9:20 pm Sunday 7/24. The problem was solved after doing what the manual advised: Turn off the motor, restart (after a few minute at least, I found out). The next morning and after starting the motor, the check engine light came on. I had Ford dealership check the vehicle that morning.
