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.

I have a 2001 Ford Taurus. While driving the vehicle the anti-theft light will come on. The vehicle will shut down without warning. I was driving on interstate 75 in tn. The speed zone is 70mph. The car shut off and I was almost hit in the rear by a semi truck. I had my entire family in the car with me at the time. This is not an intermittent problem. I took the car into a Ford dealer and I was told it was the ignition. It was replaced and two weeks later the same thing started. Now I am told it is a GEM module, or, PCM module, several other things. This to me is a very dangerous vehicle. When the car quits running, and you lose all power, and control of the vehicle, from brakes to steering. Even the steering wheel locked down. It took 2 hours before the car would restart. This has occurred over 20 times. This problem is not only dangerous to the driver, but other drivers on the road. It will one day kill people.
