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 was driving to visit my Mother on May 13,2014 {05-13-2014} when I noticed the gas pedal was all the way to the Floor and I was only going 55mph. The Speedometer has 120mph as the fastest you can go. I went to see if I could adjust the Throttle Cable and the Gas Pedal Bracket came loose from the Firewall and into my hands !

This the ONLY Vehicle that I have owned that this has EVER HAPPENED.

Is there a RECALL from FORD to fix this PROBLEM ?
