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.

Five Hundred

  • 37,000 miles
With A/C on I start car. Put car in forward or reverse. Engine surges then settles down, this is quite dangerous. Brought it in for warranty help. Was informed that it may be throttle body and throttle body is not covered in drivetrain warranty. Ford, are you kidding me? vehicle has 41,170 miles, the warranty for this item apparently ran out at 36,000 miles. This is a safety issue more than anything. This is a huge safety issue. Putting car in gear and having the engine surge is a recipe for disaster.
