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.

On 8/18/16, I was driving on Maryland state route 198, at about 40 mph, when the car began to lurch forward, stop, lurch forward as I came through a roundabout. I pulled over to the shoulder. I turned the car off, restarted the car, and while on the shoulder, I pressed the gas pedal, and again the car lurched forward twice and then stopped. Wrench light was lit up on dashboard (it wasn't lit moments before) and when I looked at the manual it said the car had defaulted to "limp to home" and I should see the dealer. I was more than 40 miles from home and called aaa. If this had occurred 10 minutes later, I would have been driving 55 mph on interstate 295 S and would have been in danger because that road has no shoulder. This car behavior mimicked what I experienced Oct. 6, 2015 (lurching, dashboard lights looking like a disco ball), when the dealer had to replace the throttle assembly (service date Oct. 7, 2015). However, the dealer is now telling me it is a transmission problem with the car showing tft sensor, P0710, P0713 code readings. This is the third major repair. On 11/23/12, the dealer replaced the instrument cluster, after I experienced an issue thanksgiving day with all dashboard lights looking like a disco ball and could not read the speedometer to know how fast I was driving while in baltimore on interstate 695. The car is 4 years old and has about 61,000 miles on it. I believe all three incidents represent safety issues. I did not know you could file a complaint until I began researching after this latest incident, and so include the the other two in this report.

This is the second time this has happened. Upon starting the car, the motor revs uncontrolled to about 7000 rpms. I have to turn ignition off to stop the motor from damaging its self. If my foot was to ever slip off the clutch, we would race uncontrolled in reverse! the car is always parked and started while in reverse. Almost afraid to start this car.

2014 Ford Mustang. Consumer writes in regards to engine problems. The consumer stated she heard a ticking sound, after driving for 15 minutes. The dealer stated the entire long block needed to be replaced. After the long block was replaced, the engine light started flashing, and the engine was revving higher than normal. The vehicle accelerating by itself in gear and there were pressure issues with the brake pedal. The dealer was unable to replicate the consumers concern. The next time the consumer returned to the dealer, the ignition was replaced. The RPM's continued to rev, idle was very rough, even with the ac off. The ticking noise was still present, and the brake pedal was hard to the touch.
