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.

2002 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

The ABS light always goes on after 15-29 miles of driving, which was verified by Goodyear dealer. They recommended me to go to the Ford dealer because they don't have necessary equipment to diagnose the problem. So I came to the quick lane at 11200 james swart circle, fairfax, va. They called me back in 2 hours and said that everything is fine with my car and completely ignored a written statement from Goodyear that the ABS light came on after 12 miles of driving. Then they told me that they will keep checking, 2 days past, nobody bothered to call me. I think it's a nice denial strategy: They fail to detect what is wrong and therefore they are not responsible for a problem and don┐T have to fix it. Obviously it's not concern of theirs that my Mustang or every Mustang I've driven engages traction control every time I have to turn up to a little hill on a wet road.... I don't even have to mention slippery conditions during winter season. That's why I always appreciated this feature, but now it's turning itself off and won┐T come back on until the engine is off for a while. I've read multiple people complaining about this, but Ford conveniently doesn't care about any of this... this is your car and you are stuck with it... I take it as Ford Motor Company complete failure to provide drivers┐ safety. Do I have to wait for an incident to happen or some preventive measures can be taken?
