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.

I have taken vehicle to armstrong Ford, world Ford, and then sawgrass Ford at least 6 times for the same problem.... my vehicle jumps forward when I am not even pushing on the gas pedal. Or it dies when it's on idle position. They have changed parts, done recall repairs, and the last time I had to pay over $100 for them to tell me they couldn't find the cause of the problem. I am afraid one day someone is going to cross in front of me and this vehicle is going to jump forward and hurt someone!!! I am tired of this problem I. have been dealing with this since a month after I bought it!!! this is crazy that they can't seem to find the cause of the problem!, and they don't want to try.... I guess they want someone to get hurt.

The caller had recall work done on his vehicle and it is running worse than before. Received recall 05S34 concerning injection control pressure sensor and wiring harness. Now, the vehicle has problems that it did not have before the recall. Vehicle stalls when engine is cold/hesitates and surges while accelerating. Took vehicle to the dealer 4 times since July 19, 2005, and is now was taking it to them again. Manufacturer can not be reached. The dealer's service manager told the consumer that he may have to live with the engineering change Ford made to the engine when recall 05S34 was completed on July 19, 2005.
