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.

Horrible!!! If I go faster than 50 miles per hour, the car occasionally jumps. I was under warranty, and took it to the Ford dealership for repairs. I was told that the car was never repaired of the recall issue, and that's why it jumped. Since I had it repaired, it has been jumping ever since.

At around 50 mph, give or take 10 miles, it jumps or surges or something. It is really annoying me! What the heck is wrong with it?
