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.

2006 Ford Five Hundred Owner Comments

Five Hundred

  • 65,000 miles


I have a 2006 Ford 500 and while sitting at a restaurant I put my car into reverse to back out of the parking space when it surged backward and I had no control. So I braked and put in forward. Then it surged forward and I had to hard brake it to stop the car. It had been making a noise like there was something wrong with the power steering. I called the dealership and a tow truck and had it taken in. The dealership ran a diagnosis and said it was the throttle bottle. Since I was about 50 miles from hone I had it towed back to my city where I am having the throttle body replaced.
