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 just dropped my wife at the airport in fort Myers Florida when i was was a stop light with my 10 yr. old son at 9 p.m. it was dark out. i was behind 4 cars when the line started to move i pressed on the gas when about 100 feet and bang it sounded like the exhaust blew a giant hole in it but i heard a flapping noise so i pulled over immediately. i felt around the throttle body and felt puffs of air coming out the manifold. man was i shocked and stunned i didn't know what to do i had no choice but to drive it home at 5 mph when i got there i put it in the garage and there it has sat til april 19 2010. i had no money to fix it i just saved a few bucks so we will see if it is worth it. from what i read this bis ba bKNOWN problem with ford engines and they should be paying for tnhr repair not me. ford put a known defective product on the market hoping it wouldn't fail but it did. i need help with repair money. ford should step up to the plate and take responsibility for there failure.
