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.

Transit Connect 4-cyl

After the vehicle sat for an unknown period of time, attempts to re-start the vehicle failed due to the apparent loss of programming in the PCM modules. Ford has recognized this issue by apparently a tsb, per the dealer, that the vehicle must be started every 15 days or this may happen. At no time was this issue relayed on any level to the end-user of the vehicle, yet, Ford expects the end-user of the vehicle to absorb the cost of re-programming. I feel strongly that as this is a recognized issue that upon the first trouble call should be compensated by Ford. Furthermore I feel that Ford should be informing the consumer of this issue.
