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.

Transmission fails without warning, causing loss of power and control of vehicle. Driving at 70 mph in traffic on interstate, engine revved to 5000 RPM's and we had to coast through traffic to the shoulder and coast to a stop. Transmission would not engage in any gear. Had to be towed. Lucky to get to the shoulder alive.

My 2006 Ford free star stopped on the road yesterday morning. The engine remained running but the van would not move at all. No way to change gears.Ford refuses to do a recall on 2006 year models but did so for 2004-2005 models with the same problem.

When filling the gas tank, it will blow the gas back out the filler hole - spraying gas a good 3 ft. In order to get gas into the tank you have to fill very slow. After many tries and nozzle shut offs you can fill the tank.

When filling the gas tank, it will kick the gas back out the filler hole - spraying gas a good 3 ft. In order to get gas into the tank you have to fill very slow and shove paper towels around it and after many tries and nozzle shut offs you can fill the tank. There are no codes showing. When looking at other sites it seems to be a big issue. This car has been to the shop before and no issues found..

I was driving the car when it suddenly stopped responding when pressing on the gas pedal. The vehicle eventually rolled to a stop. The engine was running, but the car would not move forward or reverse. Turns out it was the torque converter (transmission). It cost $1200 to repair. Very unusual for this to happen to a car with only 49000 miles. I googled the problem and got many hits. Ford had recalled the 2004 and 2005 models for this problem. Why not the 2006?
