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.

I pulled off the freeway into a rest stop area. My foot was on the brake, and only on the brake. I stopped in a parking space and moved the automatic transmission lever from drive to park. The RPM instantly increased from approximately 600 RPM in drive to approximately 6000 RPM in park. I took my foot off the brake pedal and gave the gas pedal a quick tap. The RPM returned to normal, about 750 RPM in park. The dealership inspected the car, but could not find anything wrong. They contacted Ford, who maintained the incident could not have happened the way I described it. They further told the dealership not to perform any repairs unless a similar incident recurred. The dealership thinks the problem is with the fly by wire, throttle body and/or control of the flow system. The consumer had concerns about brake fluid. The owner's manual stated to use dot 3 brake fluid. However, the dealer used dot 4 brake fluid. Updated 11/09/15.

Noticed brakes felt soft, went to check fluid, noticed brake fluid was leaking out of cap and moisture was accumulating on reservoir-wiped away and the moisture returned, the fluid level was fine but continuously fluid is building up. Took to local Ford dealer they said it was fine, however didn't make an attempt to replace cap.
