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.

Engine stumbles on acceleration. This has happened repeatedly, and the dealer in NY said there was nothing wrong. Owner/driver uses name-brand gasoline from a reputable dealer and is prompt about servicing vehicle. In a previous Ford, owner expericenced the same problem---solved by replacing sensor. This problem has nearly caused a motor vehicle accident and has been reported to both NY, ct and mt attorney generals. I wish this problem fixed.
