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.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,000 miles
Vehicle experienced sudden acceleration. When driving and coming to a stop vehicle will stall with a rough idle, and the rpms will increase to 2500 rpms, causing the vehicle to surge forward. Driver must apply the brakes, and the vehicle will shut down completely. Owner took the vehicle to the dealer. However, the problem would not duplicate itself.

F-250 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,800 miles
I work for security at a nuclear plant. We have two 2004 Ford, F250 pickups. I and several other people have had a problem with the brake pedal and accelerator pedal. We wear military style boots, if you move your foot from the accelerator to the brake and still have your foot partially over the accelerator your shoe will come in contact with the accelerator pedal before the brake pedal is depressed far enough to apply the brake. Myself and several other people have had a near miss because of the vehicle lunging forward before the brake engages.

While depressing the brake pedal accelerator pedal stuck. This caused the rpms to race at a high rate. Dealership was notified, but did not resolve the problem.

F-250 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission

Engine shuts-off while driving. On three separate instances, engine shut-off for 1~2 seconds while driving, then restarted. On another occasion, engine continued running, but lost all accelration ability. Regardless of how hard accelarator was depressed, truck would not accelerate.
