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 been having several problems with my suv. I have taken it to shops and replaced parts as often as I can only reason being that someone tells me "oh this is your problem and oh that is your problem hmmmm you should try this"... so far I have put about 3 thousand dollars of which I don't have to spare, into this thing and I can't seem to pin what the real problem is.. when I hit about 40 mph my car starts to shake and it feels like its seizing.. my friends only want to ride in my car if they need a good massage...lol I just want to know what I can do to get a smooth ride and how I can get it to accelerate normally and not take 30 seconds to get up to 30 mph.....

Ford really dropped the ball on these vehicles. Damn transmissions aren't worth a darn. Cost to fix this problem wasn't worth it. My last time buying a Ford of any kind.
