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.

problem #2

Mustang

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Vehicle regularly stalls out at stops and/or loses power (accelerator will not give proper power to vehicle) so that in an intersection there is no ability to get vehicle out of traffic safely. Also will lurch forward at stops on its own (with no power given to accelerator) which poses a safety issue for other drivers and/or pedestrians in my path.

problem #1

Mustang 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission

: the contact stated while using the fuel pumps at various service stations fuel would spill out. The fuel spills from the tank before the automatic shutoff. After inspecting the vehicle the dealership replaced the breather tube and the fuel tank. The problem continued to occur. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer and was unable to remedy the problem. There are service bulletins for the fuel system, the manufacturer numbers are 05-15-12 and 06-3-13. The contact tried different gas pumps and different gas stations with the same results. Sometimes it is so bad that one cannot even get more than a couple gallons into the car, while having it spill and run down the side and on the underside of the car.
