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.

My car kept stalling in the middle of the road and at stop signs and where ever it felt like. This started at about 20,000 miles. Then just before it got to 36,000 miles it would stall when ever it became hot. As I was going up and down the mountain passes in Washington, Oregon and California it would just stop running every mile. It was very dangerous as I had cars behind me and truckers on all sides and the car would just quit at 65 mph or what ever speed I was at. I had mad truckers and mad cars and trucks, but I didn't know what the problem was. When I limped home (780 miles) I got the car in to be checked and found that it was the fuel rail sensor. I called Ford and they refused to cover it under warranty. I was forced to pay for a faulty part out of my own pocket. Then last week I saw on the news that Toyota and another company had recalled their vehicles for the same exact part. I called Ford today again and they are still refusing to admit that this is dangerous on their cars. It seems to be ok to recall other vehicles, but Ford thinks their !@#$% doesn't stink as we say on the farm. I want thios rectified. If other manufacturers think this is a problem. I think Ford should buck up and admit that their vehicles could possibly have the same problem and that they should be fixed under warranty. I will never buy another Ford if this is the way they treat customers who have a problem with the Ford cars. Gayle sorensen
