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.

problem #3

Nov 012006

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,938 miles


I was involved in an accident which was caused by hitting the brake pedal and the accelerator at the same time. I thought I was hitting the brake when and hit the gas at the same time causing my vehicle to rear end collide with the vehicle in front of me. Since I have been driving the vehicle this has happened several times, the gas pedal is too close in height to the brake pedal.

: the contact stated that when applying the brakes the accelerator systematically depressed as well. On the first occasion while traveling 55 mph and the vehicle almost crashed into a train. There have been other incidents where the vehicle could have hit pedestrians and caused other major accidents. These incidences occurred under normal driving conditions. The vehicle was test driven by the dealer however they could not determine the cause of the problem. However the dealer indicated that the problem may be related to the recall pertaining to the speed control switch disconnecting. 08/02/06 contact stated on several occasions, due to the location of the break pedal and the accelerator pedal, contact has mashed both pedals at the same time while trying to stop.
