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.

2005 Ford Escape Hybrid Owner Comments

Escape Hybrid 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 260 miles


I pulled out of a parking lot driving our new 2005 Ford Escape hybrid and approached the first intersection when a message flashed on the dash "pull over safely now." Before I could pull over the engine turned off. After a few tries, I was able to move the car on the battery power through the intersection (very slowly) to a busy bus stop. I couldn't start the car again right away. However, on battery power again, I was able to get back to the parking lot. We had the car towed to a Ford dealership from there. It took them two weeks to figure out what was wrong and fix the car. When the incident happend, the car had 260 miles on it.
