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 2000 miles. While driving @ 35 miles per hour, check engine light came on and car stalled. Gas accelerator was inoperable. Operator was able to drive into a parking lot close by and bring car to a complete stop without any incident. Car turned on after the 5th attempt. The check engine light disappeared. The 1st occurrence, the vehicle was able to be started right away. This 2nd occurrence it took awhile. Therefore, vehicle was taken to the dealership ( North park Lincoln Ford in san antonio, tx )on 06/09/10 and obd came back with no diagnostic codes. Dealership stated that Ford engineer was on property and could not find the solution to the problem.. car is still at the dealership and they have no idea what to do.
