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.

The start engine button cuts the engine off if you accidentally hit it. It is right beside the radio on/off button so is very easy to hit by mistake. If you are driving 70 mph on the interstate and accidentally hit it you are left with no engine power, no power brakes and no power steering. Someone is going to get killed. I have written Ford a couple of times and have gotten no response except to tell my local dealer. It's not a dealer problem. The button should have some type of cover over it. This has happened to us while driving - luckily were able to put car in neutral and restart engine.
