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.

problem #2

This car goes all by its self at a stop. It can even go up a hill without pushing the gas. It also picks up speed while driving. This happens a lot.

problem #1

Jul 112014

Taurus SES 3.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 177,835 miles

This is the second time this problem has occurred. While driving 35 mph the car started to accelerated by itself. I got home again using the brake and neutral. The brakes really took a beating. I had to dodge several cars in a residential neighborhood due to high speed. When I got home I tried to find the reason for this problem only to find out that Ford had a recall for this problem. They supposedly sent letters to owners for this problem. I never got one. This problem is for Taurus models 2001 to 2006. Supposedly there have been no injuries related to this problem. I don't know how this is possible. I don't if the recall is still in effect. I know my car needs fixing. Who is going to take care of that.
