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.

Brake pedal location and depressing vehicle's brake pedal and gas pedal at the same time. Street department workers wearing proper work boots have found that the pedal spacing is not adequate between gas pedal and brake pedal. There have been at least 10 times where the employee has depressed the brake pedal and the vehicle would not stop. It has been determined that the brake pedal and gas pedal placement are to close to each other and both pedals can be depressed at the same time giving the operator the feeling of no brake pedal and the vehicle not stopping. We have reproduced this situation at least 5 times and feel that it is imperative that you be notified of this design defect. We contacted reutehr Ford, mike bowen a service advisor and they state that they are aware of this situation but Ford has not addressed it at this point. This is a lawsuit waiting to happen.
