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.

My initial problem was traction control. If you slip coming out of a driveway and you hit gravel, mud, snow, rain your traction control will stop you in the middle of the street and you cannot drive. Kind of a problem with cars coming right at you. Problem 2 is that this seems to also affect the wheel bearings and cause premature failure. I am going on my second replacement at 72,000 miles. Problem 3 is that when the wheel bearings fail they wear on your rotors and I am now also needing to replace those also. I certainly hope that this gets addressed soon. This vehicle is not only a safety hazard it is also a money pit.

The contact owns a 2010 Ford Transit connect. The contact stated that while driving at various speeds in the snow, the vehicle stalled due to the traction control independently assuming the vehicle was slipping. The vehicle was taken to a dealer for diagnosis and the contact was told that the vehicle was performing as designed. The failure recurred numerous times. The vehicle had not been repaired. The failure mileage was 18,000 and the current mileage was 48,000.
