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.

Excessive acceleration. I was going up a hill in DC traffic and could not stop accelerating. I had to put the emergency brakes on and turn the car off. Hrottle positoin sensor went out. I sent the car to the Ford dealership. My extented warranty did not cover that B/C they said it was a fuel system problem not a emission problem.
