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 owned this vehicle for only 3 months and bought it from a dealer with low miles. Twice now in that three months I have been completly stopped with foot on brake and the vehicle lurched forward as if it had been hit from behind. Today in heavy freeway traffic it did the same. Almost hitting the car in front of me. I have called Ford and talked to the dealership and they say they have never heard of this. I just had it in and it passed with flying colors. I did count 19 complaints on your site with the same issue. Does someone have to die first?
