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.

2016 Ford Explorer. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle complete loss of power, airbag, check engine and powertrain warning lights illuminated at various times and accelerator malfunction. The consumer stated while driving on a main road, he heard a loud thud accompanied by an immediate and complete loss of power. The engine was still running, but the vehicle quickly lost speed and the accelerator was not functioning. It seemed as though the engine was idling. The consumer was able to maneuver the vehicle safely out of traffic and had the vehicle towed to the dealer. The dealer informed the consumer, the throttle body needed to be replaced. Also, there was a recurring electrical issue that he experienced in January 2016 with the first month of delivery. The vehicle was towed to the dealer for service on two separate occasions due to dead batteries.
