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.

2009 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

I rented a car from thrifty in seattle, and was assigned an almost new Mustang. I found it extremely difficult to brake with my left foot without also hitting the accelerator. The pedals were very close and almost same height. I considered the car undriveable. I exchanged it asap, no surprise to thrifty.

While driving at 25 mph and trying to evade a driver who ran a stop sign, I slammed on the brakes of my 2009 Ford Mustang GT. Even though my vehicle is equipped with an anti-lock brake system (ABS), the brakes did lock and the car skid leaving tire marks for several feet. I have owned vehicles equipped with ABS for at least the past 15 years and I have never seen this brake behavior across any of those vehicles as I did today.
