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.

2009 Ford Flex Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 182011


  • 30,500 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Ford Flex. While driving approximately 5 mph, the vehicle would no longer accelerate. The contact attempted to accelerate beyond 5 mph but the vehicle would not respond. The vehicle was pulled over and shut off. Upon restarting, the contact was able to continue driving normally. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the contact was told that the all wheel drive and anti lock braking system engaged simultaneously, not allowing the vehicle to accelerate beyond 5 mph. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 30,500.
