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

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


I go out to the car, in a hurry to get to work, and the damn lever won't release the gear shifter! I sit there and wait and fume and wiggle and giggle, and when it finally decides I have been punished enough, it will click and be fine for the rest of the day. The manual says that it will do this when a light bulb has blown, but I can't find one that has. It is making me late for work and I will get fired if I can't figure out what to do!
