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.

2006 Ford Freestar failed to move forward in gear while driving on busy road. This occurred two different times. Most recent instance saw me and my 4 year old daughter placed in peril. I have had transmission replaced only to find that problems may be the result of the PCM failing as a result of getting "wet" due to a faulty seal on the box that houses the PCM. Most recent incident nearly resulted in our nearly being rear ended by a semi tractor trailer at 50 mph. Fortunately, I had the presence of mind to shift to neutral, restart van and coast off road just ahead of truck. Van stalled and would not run. Had to leave at garage out of town and get a ride home for my and my 4 year old daughter.
