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.

2013 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #7

May 232016


  • 32,100 miles


Vehicle lost power while driving, engine wrench light came on, driveable but only in "limp" mode. After restart, engine appeared to work fine, however, same issue reoccurred several more times and continues to happen-similar to other Ford vehicle throttle body recalls. Major safety issue as complete vehicle shutdown occurs without warning. No recall yet.

Vehicle lost power while driving, engine wrench light came on, made rattling noise but still idling. After full shutdown and restart, engine appeared to work fine. Dealer determined throttle body defective, similar to other Ford vehicle throttle body issues which had recent recalls and warranty extensions, however this particular model and year is not covered. $1250 repair bill.

While refueling my vehicle in the new cap less fuel filler port, as I pulled out the nozzle excess fuel spilled out around the cap less filler port. The drains around the cap less port drained the spilled fuel inside the quarter panel of car which directed the fuel directly onto the drivers side muffler. If my car had been hot, the fuel would have ignited. This seems to me to be a very unsafe situation.
