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 with the emergency fuel shut off switch location in the 2006 Ford Five hundred. My passenger in the car ( front passenger seat side) unknowingly tapped or bumped the switch which caused the cars engine to loose power and then completely stall. Dealer ( sunrise Ford in North hollywood told me today it was this switch that was activated which caused the stalling of my engine. My passenger ( adult male- 6'2" large shoe size) was working with me in the san fernando valley of los angeles county on 6/28/06. Apparently his foot bumped this switch which has got to be in an improper location ( not concealed).
