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

Several times, over a period of 2 years, at low speeds (approx. 30 mph) ABS and brake light come on with alarm sounds. Able to stop, but brakes not responding correctly, turned off ignition, restarted, everything ok. Then ABS and brake light come on and won't go off, have brakes but they don't respond correctly, making the car very unsafe to drive. Go for diagnosis; afterward no brakes and hybrid assist message appears. Car is no longer operable. All brake incidents occurred on city streets or in driveway on starting. Diagnosis: Master cylinder needs replacing and probably hydraulic control unit as well. Total cost for parts before labor $6,000, approximately the same as the value of the vehicle. The failure of these parts is apparently a common and well known problem that Ford refuses to address.
