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 gas pedal and brake pedal are able to be applied simultaneously causing near accidents. The cause seems to be because of the closeness of the brake and gas pedals both horizontally and vertically. Since ownership of this vehicle, this situation has occurred 4 times. This vehicle is equipped with electrically adjusted pedals which brings the pedals too close in proximity to each other causing these near accidents because the foot unintentionally is able to apply pressure to both brake and gas pedals.this situation I believe is caused through the engineering of the vehicle and the cost to correct this problem should be born by Ford Motor Company.

Taurus X

2008 Ford taurusx - vehicle surges or looses power when approaching a stop. Vehicle also has low power and poor acceleration at times. Check/service engine light comes on and off. This has been happening since we purchased the vehicle in 2009. Ford did not tell us what the problem was until the warranty ended in 2010 with 36K miles. Ford said we need a new throttle body. We had the throttle body replaced but from what I have read the problem is expected to return as soon as the throttle body gets normal dirt form normal operation (3months estimated time). This car is the primary vehicle for my wife and two small children and I fear for their safety but what can I do with a car I cant afford to trade away for something decent and safe.
