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.

The Ford panel near the driver and passenger window continues to come apart. As far as the vehicle's fuel. The first time I was at a gas station. I put gas in my car. I got back in the vehicle and my gauge was still on empty. So I got worried. Then I went to a different gas pump and put more gas in there. I started my car and it was still on empty. I drove around the parking lot to see what would happen and about 2 minutes later my gas gauge was 3/4 full. This was in November. Then about 5 times after that. I will be on the last mark before empty and not only does it go from 80-70 miles to E to complete 0 miles, but my gauge goes from that mark to pass the E. I was driving my vehicle and it went from that same mark ( the mark right before the E) and just ran out of gas. I have took it to the shop twice and that can't find a code. They said if it happens again then bring it back in. But the inconvenience I have to wait until I have time. It happened today Feb 10 2014 and I raced to a gas station. I don't want it to happen and I'm driving in traffic and have an accident because my gas gauge is wrong and I stop in the middle of traffic. I don't want to get stranded somewhere either because I have a kid. I have seen same complaints about this vehicle. So I'm very concerned.

I feel there is a safety defect in the model of the 2009 Ford Flex with a dvd system. When the monitor is in use there's an obstruction of view for the driver. It is quite difficult to see out of the rear view mirror when the monitor is in use. I have tried adjusting the driver seat and I can not find a position where there is not an obstruction of view for the driver.
