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 problems with brake and transmission passes the changes and gives a hit. The brake is going to the bottom and makes noise, on occasion gets hard the pedal and no brakes, I was talking to a person who has a Ford edge 2010 and it passed the same, the person called to Ford and had a recall and Ford fixed it, I called for my Taurus no recall of that, but it is curious that suffers from the same problem and Ford not give me a recall. Sometimes when I accelerated the car does not respond as suppose to.

On or around 10/14/2014 my Ford Taurus sho 2010 suddenly lost power and started to shake and missfire. Had it towed to Ford griffin. They stated it was a bad injector. On or around 4/27/2015 heading home from work I pulled off the freeway on to hwy 164 in heavy traffic the car suddenly lost power and started to shake and missfire almost causing me to get hit from the cars behind me, luckily they swerved on to shoulder to avoid hitting me. Had the car towed to griffin Ford. Again it was a bad injector, cylinder #6 the first time now #4. then on or around 8/15/2015 coming home from the store the car suddenly lost power, started shaking and missfire. Had the car towed to griffin again. It was another bad injector #2 cylinder. They said they couldn't fix it until they found the cause. They looked in the gas tank for contaminants and found nothing. Then tested for alcohol levels in gas found nothing ran some other test found nothing. Finally just fixed it. So whats going on? I'm somewhat afraid of driving the car for fear of causing a accident. It's my only car so I guess I have no choice.

I've complained to multiple service dealers that my car almost stalls while leaving a dead stop and also hesitates at highway speeds. I'm afraid to drive it out of state for fear of an incident because of the engine/transmission behavior. One dealer service transmission specialist ordered a part and installed it, but, the problems still exist!
