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.

Vehicle stops when brake pedal applied, then moves forward while brake pedal is held down. Vehicle them moves forward on its own, again, requiring additional pedal pressure until pedal nearly at floor. Numerous drivers in the office have experienced same problem with this vehicle. Vehicle was returned to dealer (jones Ford) who said nothing was wrong - this is impossible since at least four different drivers experienced same problem.
