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 a 2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac - the fuel delivery system switch seems to shut down all by itself. Once about 6 months ago when I was at a stand still in the left hand turn lane of a busy intersection and again last night while driving on the very busy 405 fwy. The truck just "shuts off" no gas, no nothing. I had one passenger injured as we were pulled over, a car went buy at a high rate of speed and knocked my friend into the side of the truck. This is a very dangerous situation. You can't drive a vehicle that will just turn itself off in "mid-stream" I could have caused a very big accident.
