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.

When putting the vehicle in gear it accelerates on it's on. The car killed, when I started it back emissions light came on. Vehicle would not accelerate when I pressed the gas pedal, but it would gradually pickup speed if I held the pedal down.

2006 Ford Freestyle. Vehicle acts to stall and then jumps forward. Backing out and turning on my ac and lunges forward and backwards. Thought it was a gas issue and used cleaner for tank and still happened several times randomly. Would slow at a stop light and then jump forward. Pressed the brake pedal to stop it from moving. No mishaps. Just concerned what was making it do this.

Surging from a while brake applied or when letting off brake but before applying gas. Front end noises when turning to right, loud creaking sound. Brakes make a creaking sound also but show now signs of needing to be replaced. All issues started at the same time.

This complaint is in addition to complaint #10277570. After writing my initial complaint as explained I have found out that Ford quit using the initial manufacture of the throttle control unit that failed. They just recently came out with a replacement part that requires modification of the system and we understand that they are quickly running out of this part. Even our service reps feels this should be a recall item. Especially if they cannot keep the parts on the shelf.
