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.

Without warning, brakes seemed to fail. Brake peddle had to be pushed further down with more force to stop the vehicle. Several warning lights related to service and brakes lit up on the dashboard. After turning the car off and then restarting the car about 20 min later, the brakes were fine and working normally again. Dealer diagnosed that electronic ABS module intermittently fails. Stated it could fail again without warning

In a shopping plaza went to stop at a stop sign and brakes became spongy and car was very difficult to stop where normally expected. When finally stopped it seemed to want to lurch ahead dashboard had a red " brake service" warning light and then a number a number of yellow warnings appeared. Happened again at another stop sign on my way home. Drove to the nearest dealer where car is serviced and they pulled a code C1012 memory continuous code. They could not recreate the problem and released the car back to me. In Sep 2015 car had software updated after a " tool" kept appearing. After you turned off car they brakes seemed to work ok. I'm concerned if this happens on freeway.

Brake warning lights came on and total loss of brakes. This has happened twice in two weeks. Has been to a Ford dealer to have the problem looked at they found nothing, told me to drive the car and if it happens again they would put the car on an electronic tester. The problem did show up again on October 26,2014, I will be taking the car back to the Ford dealer.
