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.

2005 Ford Mustang GT -had an electrical system problem which resulted in a crash. While turning off of the highway into a residential area the transmission malfunctioned causing uncontrollable acceleration. The brakes were appliedbut the vehicle continued to accelerate. The front brakes did not stop the vehicle. The vehicle went into a clock wise spin. The car turned onto the driver's side and then hit a tree. What happened next was that the electrical system was still acting strange, the trunk opened and trying to close it back down the lights came off and on. The door locks would lock and unlock by themselves. The vehicle had $6,300 worth of damage. The dealership did not assist the consumer with anything. The vehicle was purchased on August 29, 2005 as a new vehicle which only had 72 miles on it. Upon impact the airbags did not deploy and the fuel cut off switch did not activate. A police report was taken.
