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.

2010 Ford Flex Owner Comments

problem #2

Oct 212011

Flex Limited AWD Ecoboost

  • Automatic transmission
  • 21,619 miles


This repair was never trully completed, as it was in the shop on Nov. 6, 2011 at 21899 miles for stalling again, then again on Jan 13, 2012 to disconnect battery to reboot computer. It continued for months and still does. It started with fuel injector and coil assembly and lead to 6 sprk plugs and it still stalls occasionally and sometimes does not respond on acceleration. No fix

problem #1

Flex SE Eco V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 31,115 miles

here we go again, this time check engine, and another fuel system product, canister purge valve, what the hell, 2x sending units replaced, a fuel pump, now this, and sad part on paper work ford tech line says common occurance for these issues on some ford models, what's even scarier is that all 4 times when the flex has been hooked to computer no idc codes pop up, so they're just guessing as far as I'm concerned.
