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.

Explorer Sport Trac

  • 8,530 miles


2010 Ford Sport Trac sudden acceleration. Twice. Sept 2, 2010 I rolled to a stop at a stop sign and lightly applied the brake. The engine began to rev as if it were in neutral. The engine engaged and the car lurched forward twice. I turned off the key. October 11, 2010 I rolled to a stop at a stoplight and applied the brake. The engine began to rev as if in neutral then the engine engaged and the car lurched forward twice. I had people in the vehicle with me and the car in front of me moved into the intersection on the red light to avoid being rear-ended. The dealership could find nothing wrong with it. Several mechanics were listening to my description and said it sounded like a throttle over-ride.
