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.

The dashboard on the passenger side around the airbag is bulging. It has gotten worse as time goes on. I am worried that if I was ever in an accident, the passenger would not be protected.

Passenger side airbag is bulging up on one side. I park in a garage and I'm in wi so we don't get extreme heat, so I'm not sure why I'm having a issue. It's either an airbag issue or a dashboard issue. My passenger side airbag light appears to be working fine...it only goes on with a passenger or when my purse gets too heavy and its on the seat. Also, my accelerator petal makes a weird static-sounding noise when it's at a certain position. It has nothing to do with speed, it happens at various speeds, so it's only when the petal is held in the same spot which is about halfway down to the floor. If I press the petal down beyond this spot or raise my foot so the petal is above that spot, the noise stops...only to return again when the petal eventually lands back in that problematic spot (about halfway down).

On several occasions, primarily in colder weather, the air bag indicator in the instrument cluster on the dash board remains on after starting. This happens unpredictably at random intervals. Once the engine is warm, shutting off the ignition and restarting will resolve the problem. I am told that the air bags will not deploy if the air bag light is on.

Back in June,2014 I noticed something weird on my dash. For some reason the dash above the passenger side airbag is bubbling up. At first I thought it might be the heat from the sun, so I started parking my car in the shade to avoid higher temps hitting the dash. Unfortunately, it did not help. The bubble kept growing and growing. Now it's so large that I am worried that the airbag has become compromised. I am concerned that the airbag may deploy when I'm driving or possible not deploy if I am in a car accident. It appears there are quite a few people complaining about the same problem. Please fix this Ford!! very dangerous!

The air bag on the passenger side of the vehicle, above the glovebox has exposed itself and the actual part of the surrounding dashboard has lifted upwards on it's own, it appears to be a safety defect and now my passenger airbag light stays on and I'm scared it will go off at any time due to the exposure of the components.
