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.

Car seemed to have a miss when driving....after stopping and getting back in and starting car was apparently not running like it supposed to....also had no gas pedal control at all...was able to turn off and restart and get to a auto parts store to have engine tested ( at this time notice engine light on). Code given was P2111....throttle acuator control system stuck open upon doing research have found numerous complaints on same model car as mine....also Ford escape has same issue and Ford has extended warranty to fix the problem.......consumer satisfaction program 13N03. I contacted my local Ford dealer and they say not related to my car...apparently this may be the same issue as help from them though

The vehicles interior door panels will rattle while the car accelerates and when the vehicle stereo is playing. The vehice has been in to have this addressed numerous times and multiple dealers are unable to repair the issue. Door panels have been replaced to no avail. This is very distracting and may impair ability to hear what traffic is doing around the vehicle.

Mustang 6-cyl

  • 3,210 miles
Incident: While waiting in the left turn lane for the left turn light to turn green I had my foot on the brake. I was behind another left turning vehicle. When the light changed I took my foot off the brake so to apply pressure on the accelerator. However, before I put my foot on the accelerator the vehicle lunged forward. Fortunately, I was able to reapply brake and the car stopped. This took place on level ground on South bound highway 19 at henry St. In kona.
