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.

6-22-2010, vehicle began surging and would lunge forward at idle speed with foot on brake. Wrench light on dash is on and vehicle continues to do this in drive and reverse. Took to service department 6-23-2010 to have checked. Was informed problem was throttle body assembly. Part is on back order due to multiple problems with this same part. Cost is est. $800 repair. Am now having to drive a vehicle I no longer consider safe until part is available or problem is taken care of by manufacture. Multiple searches online found that this is a growing problem with this vehicle and no reports have been made to date by manufacturer to solve the problem. Vehicle is a 2007 Ford Freestyle.

My Freestyle has a problem with the engine surging / lurching while driving both forward or reverse even when the brake is applied. On 25 Aug 2009, I made an appointment with beach Ford dealership in Virginia beach, va. The technician could not replicate the problems I was having. The maintenance team tried again and conducted a "pin point test" and found out that the TB needs to be replaced. The dealership ordered the part which is in back order until 7 Dec, 2009.
