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.

2008 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

Mustang 6-cyl

Parking car into parking bay between building support and other car. With my foot on brake and at a stop I reached to place car in park when for no reason the car accelerated over a concrete parking stop, through a ditch, out of the ditch before striking another truck head on in the parking area across the ditch. My foot was on the brake the entire time and I did not touch the shifter at all! the car could be revving very high as it move forward and I pressed the brake pedal as hard as I could to no avail. Preliminary discussions with dealership have insinuated this could not have happened and they seem to be resisting to look into this mechanical malfunction. Very concerned this can happen again where someone could get killed!!
