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.

2007 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

When I first got the car in 2007 about a week later got off the freeway got to the stop light the car shut off no warning signs, I was able to start the right up. The car has done this a few times (6) no mechanic can tell why this happens. I'm afraid that one day I'm going to be on the freeway and the car is going to stop and their is going to be a deadly accident.

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.

Harmonic balancer/crankshaft pulley came apart on a 2007 Ford Mustang V6 while driving. It had less than 37000 miles on it. Luckily, all that happened was serpentine belt slipped off, which I realized immediately when I lost power steering. I was near home and got home safely. This could be a major problem if it happened at highway speed. Replaced by my mechanic, who says that he has seen this numerous time in the past, and that Ford now sells an "updated" part for the vehicle. This suggest to me they know there is a problem, but don't want to pay to replace it.
