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 Fusion Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 132014


  • 124,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Ford Fusion. The contact stated that while the vehicle was idle, it responded as if it was shutting down. When gasoline was added to the vehicle, it only accelerated up to 5 mph. The vehicle had to be shut down and restarted in order to regain proper acceleration. The failure recurred three times over a period of four months. The vehicle was taken to a dealer, who diagnosed that the vehicle had an internal short. The throttle body assembly needed to be replaced and the PCM reset in order to repair the vehicle. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the defect. The approximate failure mileage was 124,000.
