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.

I got a "stop safely now; check charging station" alert while on the freeway and the car lost power. This happened several times. The dealer reported that the egr valve was blocked and replaced it. Several days later, the "stop safely now" alert/loss of power happened after the repair. The dealer then reported these error codes: P0A0A, P1A10, P1A14, P1A0A, concern with high voltage interlock circuit, cited tsb 12-05-14, installed overlay wire harness.

When decelerating, my car sometimes "jerks", accompanied by multiple warning lights and--dangerously--a total loss of engine power. The car goes dead, in the middle of the road, and has to be restarted by removing the key and reinserting it. This could cause a collision both from behind (by someone who doesn't realize that the car has just "died"--especially at night), as well as the "jerk" potentially causing me to collide with someone in front. My dealership told me that Ford had "put out a bulletin" regarding this issue, which called for the installation of a new wiring harness. And yet--inexplicably given that this is a safety hazard--this apparently "known" issue is not treated as a recall, with me being charged more than $500 for parts and labor. I've seen numerous reports of people with the same issue, many with less mileage than myself (97,000), so I'm shocked that a recall hasn't happened, especially given the danger that this issue poses to the car's occupants and those nearby.

The contact owns a 2011 Ford Fusion hybrid. The contact stated that while coming to a stop, the vehicle stalled and various warning lights illuminated. The contact mentioned that the vehicle was able to start after multiple attempts. The failure recurred intermittently. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the electronic cooling pump failed and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 51,000.

1. the 2011 Ford Fusion hybrid is equipped with a power point providing 110 volts alternating current (vac) to a 3-prong receptacle located in the rear seat area of the center console. The 110 vac power point is equipped with a safety cap and a safety twist tab that provide protection from inserting any object into the power point other than the 110 vac electrical device plug. 2. a child leaving our vehicle had a foot entangled with a 3-prong cord connected to the power point, resulting in disassembly of the safety cap from the body of the power point. The disassembled power point exposes two brass electrical contacts with 110 vac. A person attempting to reassemble the safety cap with the power point body while the engine is running may contact the high voltage contacts, resulting in a burn injury or death by electrocution. 3. the power point should be recalled and replaced with a similar device that cannot be disassembled.
