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.

My car has approximately 31000 miles on it. I"M the second owner of this vehicle. 18 days ago antifreeze was on my garage floor. My mechanic come over and explained to me that my water pump had gone bad. So I took my car to the dealership and they told me that it was still was under power train warranty. They diagnosed my car and verified that it was indeed the water pump and that there was another person that was waiting ahead of me for the same thing 30 days. I called other dealerships and they too were out of water pumps. My concern is that I will have to keep buying anti freeze every other day and I cannot afford this. This dealer ship told me that they did not have a loaner vehicle for me. Please help. Thank you.

Mustang 6-cyl

  • 500 miles
While driving slowly at a intersection and gently applying the brakes the engine accelerated and the ABS went on but the car didn't stop until I turned the corner. I checked the next day to see if it was possible that I had applied the brakes and the accelerator pedal. There is no way my foot could have applied both systems simultaneously. I had the dealer check my auto today but because the check engine didn't come on the could not find any malfunction. This is the first occurrence on the 2012 Ford Mustang V6.
