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

  • 52,000 miles


The contact owns a 2011 Ford Transit connect. While merging into traffic at 20 mph, the contact heard an abnormal loud noise coming from the vehicle. The contact stated that the failure became worse over time. An independent mechanic was unable to duplicate the failure. Shortly after, the throttle body and check engine indicators illuminated on the instrument panel. The contact took the vehicle to another independent mechanic to have the vehicle diagnosed and was informed that the transmission had become inoperable and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 52,000.
