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 drive a 2007 Ford Mustang. At 7:00 am on my way to work my car decided to turn into christiene. : -). the throttle body or the accelerator decided to stick. The RPM's were racing. I burnt up the back brake pads and the rotors, of trying to get the car to slow down. I even tried gearing the Mustang down. When I finally got to a safe spot, I then turn off the ignition. I started it up to if sitting and resetting the computer would fix the problem. I pressed on the accelerator and the problem started again. I started the car three times and I got the same response. After setting for a hour and a half I pressed on the accelerator again. It was fine. I did immed. Took it to a near by Ford dealership to have them hook it to a computer. They said, "it show were the RPM were racing, but there was issue showing up." They also told me that they could not get this issue to happen again while they had it and that they could not promise me that this issue would not happen again. I have spoken to a co-worker and he has a 2006 Mustang and he said that his accelerator done the same to him. I drive for a living (a school bus) and I seldom get scared, but after that morning I am scared to drive my Mustang and never had something to scare me as bad. I believe with out my driving skills I could have had a terrible accident.

I purchased a 2007 Mustang pony V-6 and it has all kinds of problems. The transmission was replaced at 1100 miles and still does not shift correctly and is noisy. I have also twice experienced an odd acceleration with this car. This car vibrates from the rearview mirrors, the dash, and steering wheel. I feel it is an accident waiting to happen. I have 1500 miles on this car and am hoping Ford will buy it back--because no dealership will take in trade.

2007 Mustang GT throttle stuck which resulted in an increase of speed with no brakes available to me except the emergency brake. I have a 5 speed manual transmission I was able to push in the clutch but my brake did not work nor was I able to take it out of gear. I pulled the emergency brake at the increasing rate of speed of 50 mph, which the car did stop but was still tacked out at 7000 to 8000 RPM with sudden deceleration. Ford was contacted but due to Ford not able to duplicate the problem they want to return the car to me not repaired. I feel as though not only is my life in danger but also my young daughters or anyone on the road. I am scared of this car!!!!!
