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.

Mustang 6-cyl

  • 35,130 miles


I was driving my 2012 Ford Mustang V6 premium on the morning of 10\21\2013 when for the 4th time the advance traction control malfunctioned. When it malfunctioned the traction control light started to flash and I was unable to steer my car, blower on my air conditioner came on by its self full blast. While I was trying to get control of the vehicle a eighteen wheeler had to go off the interstate into the grass to keep from running my car over! this is not the first time this has happened it has been in the shop 3 other times starting at about 13000 miles. The problem is only getting worse!! I carried it to the shop when it first started having this problem they told me then that the control module was under national back order at it was going to be 6 to 8 weeks before they would have to part in for my car. The dealer was told by tech support to replace my 2012 part with a 2013 part"?" they did that even though the part number was different. The next time I carried the car in the shop for the traction control they keep my car and did nothing.the third time I carried it to the shop for the same thing the tech connected to the car to the computer the alternator sent crazy waves to the electrical system and it messed up the battery they had to change the alternator and the battery. And even with everything they have done the car is still unsafe to drive and they tell me to take the car and when it happens again they will check it again. Now I am stuck with a car that is going to get someone hurt or worse someone killed!!! please help!!!

Mustang 8-cyl

  • 10,000 miles
While driving on a dry, straight stretch of road at 50mph, the traction control/stability control system kicked in and started slowing the vehicle for no apparent reason. The system pulsed the brakes for about 1/4 mile, then the system returned to normal. Dash lights indicated traction control was kicking on. This has occurred on three separate occasions.
