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 contact owns a 2010 Ford Flex. The contact stated that the blower for the heating and air conditioning failed on the passenger side of the vehicle. The heating and air conditioning did not work on the entire passenger side of the vehicle. When the failure occurred, the vent blew hot air and one side blew cold air. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was determined that the blower motor for the air conditioning and heating failed. The vehicle had not been repaired. The failure mileage was 65,000.

Flex

  • 90,000 miles
As indicated by a number of Flex owners, my Flex simply died in the middle of the freeway going 70 mph. No warning - lights on dash went on, lost all power including power steering. After muscling the car to the shoulder, putting in park and sitting for a few minutes, it started back up. Took to dealer who said they could find nothing wrong. Extremely dangerous. I was almost rear ended. How many different people need to be affected by this problem before Ford and NHTSA take action.

Flex 6-cyl

  • 56,000 miles
Got in my car and when I started the vehicle the air bag light along with the traction control indicator light came on, took it to a dealer to see what the issue was and was told it is the restraint control module and to replace it will cost $900. This is obviously a faulty part and should be covered as it directly controls the sir bags and the seat belts. So because I do not have $900 laying around I G=have to hope I am not in a collision until I can come up with the ridiculous amount of money to replace a plug in module that costs less than $100 to manufacture.
