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.

Intermittent problem in which engine will race when applying brakes, and foot off of gas pedal. Usually occurs when stopping at stop sign or pulling into parking place. Car will come to almost complete stop and then the engine will race and the car will lurch forward, and brakes cannot stop car. Brake pedal will go all the way to the floor without stopping vehicle. I have had to shift into neutral or park to stop the vehicle. Needless to say this is a very unsafe is at Ford dealer presently.
