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.

2004 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

Mustang 8-cyl

While driving my 2004 Mustang cobra, the gas pedal became stuck at wide open throttle. I shifted the car into neutral and it bounced off the redline for about 3 seconds before I turned the car off. I nearly got into an accident trying to stop the car. I found the gas pedal to be stuck against the underside of the edge of the floors carpet. Now I don't know if something is broken on my car. It has less than 5,000 miles on it and is just over a year old. Someone is going to get killed from this, and it is definitely a design flaw with the car as I know from internet forums it has happened to many people.
