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.

Escape Hybrid

  • 74,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Ford Escape hybrid. The contact stated that while driving approximately 80 mph, the vehicle suddenly stalled after an unknown warning light illuminated. The vehicle was able to continue driving on the battery power and then independently restarted. The vehicle was inspected by an independent mechanic and they advised him that they were unable to diagnose the failure. A few weeks later, the exact failure recurred. The vehicle was taken back to the independent mechanic who advised taking the vehicle to an authorized dealer. The dealer inspected the vehicle and advised him that the failure was caused by the coolant pump. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 74,000. The VIN was unavailable.
