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.

While driving from los angeles to phoenix in the summer, the car suddenly flashed a red warning light, and shut the engine off with the car moving at freeway speed. After pulling to the side of the road, and turning the engine off and on again, the car gave no indication that something had happened. It shut off again ten miles later, and again, and again. I turned around and brought the car home and took it to a dealer. They replaced the hybrid computer, but it did the same thing again driving to las vegas a few months later. The dealer cleaned the throttle body, and said everything was good. It has since done it again and again, sometimes just merging onto the freeway near my home. Repeatedly, the car has lost power - usually on the freeway, and often with my family in the car. I try not to let my wife drive it at this point, because I'm worried that she'll either get stranded with the kids, or get hit by someone when the car shuts off on the freeway. We no longer drive it significant distances.

Normal driving in 55 mph zone car suddenly would not accelerate past 40 mph. Noticed wrench light illuminated. Turned car around and proceeded toward home. Engine revved at stopping but could not get out of way of fast traffic. Almost hit in rear several times. Flasher emergency lights necessary. Googled issue to see that it is a defect and NHTSA has decided to let Ford handle resolution. Fox in charge of the hen house again. Thanks again to another government consumer protection Agency that will not protect us. Called Ford corporate customer service and of course my vehicle is not part of the Ford "customer satisfaction" repair. Why am I not surprised?
