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.

We own a 2007 Ford Freestyle. When we come to a stop, for instance at a traffic light, the engine will rev up and the vehicle will lurch forward. This often causes the vehicle to then stall. This happens all the time if we are running the air conditioner. Now we shut the air conditioner off while driving in town. We have avoided any incidents so far. Although many times have had to apply extreme pressure to the brakes to keep from lurching into a vehicle in front of us. The vehicle will still lurch, but so far we have been able to stop it in time. As I said before the pressure we have to apply to the brakes is extreme. This also will happen when backing up. The engine will rev up and then die.

My 2007 Ford Freestyle has had several problems this summer that appear to be occurring frequently all over the United States. Our Freestyle has just over 60,000 miles on it. A month ago, we had to replace the air compressor. Then the car began lurching and one day kept dying as the check engine light came on. Right now, it has been at the dealership for 2 weeks awaiting a throttle body sensor which is on backorder since so many of these models have this problem. Clearly Ford needs to recall this model and quickly find replacement parts for these vehicles.

We own a 2007 Ford Freestyle with a 3L engine. We are experiencing a surging of the engine when the air conditioner is on and we are turning into tight spots such as parking spots. Today (13aug2010) I left the vehicle idling while I went inside a pizza store to buy a pizza (less than three minutes). When I returned to the vehicle and placed it in reverse to back out of our parking spot the vehicle surged in reverse and died. After restarting the engine it would not idle correctly and a wrench light on the dash board came on. The vehicle cut out as I put it in drive to move out of the driving lane and on the ride home the engine would cut out occasionally but never completely died. At home I checked the engine and noticed the top motor mount bushing was broken.
