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.

Seat belt latch failure. The plastic cover on the seat belt latch receiver detaches from the assembly during normal use. This renders the seat belt unable to latch completely, and renders the seat belt inoperable. The passenger may not be aware that the latch is not secured. This was noted on two separate belts in the rear seats of a rented 12-passenger Transit. Based on my interview with the passenger, it most likely occurred by sitting on the lower receiver while having a mobile phone in their back pants pocket. On one occasion, the passenger stated she heard a "crack" or "pop." It should be noted that both occupants were less than 150 lbs. The plastic covers did not completely fail, but were shifted towards the anchor of the lower assembly. This did create a situation where the passenger was unprotected.
