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 vehicle will stop accepting accelerator commands randomly. It will refuse to accelerate when the accelerator is depressed. There have been 4 of these vehicles in our fleet do this. Ford is aware of the problem but refuses to do anything about it to accommodate the drivers even going so far as to state it could be weeks before even diagnosing the problem. This is to cover the fact hat they have the throttle bodies needed to repair this complaint on backorder. If on a freeway this is a dangerous failure that would compromise the safety of all on board. The vehicle was in motion at the time of the failure on a city street.

When driving down the freeway the dash dinged and said engine fault service now. The vehicle lost acceleration and had to coast to the shoulder while vehicles were going around him. Ford says this is a safety feature when a part goes bad so the engine doesn't get damaged. The throttle body had to be replaced. It is very dangerous for the vehicle to lose all acceleration when driving on the freeway with no warning. This should not happen.
