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 Ford 2004 engine will not start. Fuel shut off switch underneath the dashboard on passenger side is defective. Each time before starting I have to push this switch. This can be a huge safety issue. I hope my truck does not stop on the freeway with my kids in it.

The inertia switch on my 2004 Ford Ranger tripped 4 times in one day, after I had it towed 30 miles, thinking my fuel pump had died.

Fuel cut off switch located under the dashboard on passenger's side was engaged on two separate occasions while driving at highway speed of 50 mph or more. The fuel cut off switch was engaged by the passenger's foot. Vehicle was towed to the dealer, who replaced the fuel cut off switch. Consumer was concerned that the fuel cut off switch did not have a protective cover to prevent this incident from recurring.
