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 automatic traction control is too sensitive at low speeds and cuts engine back and brakes the tire where vehicle is stuck in snow. No off button even though operators manual indicates an off button if equipped is needed under these very conditions. Local Ford dealer claims all North american vehicles comes with no off switch. The electronics is great normally, but not so under these conditions. Have to be more aggressive as to not cause a traffic jam in inclement weather. I do not want to be more aggressive!!!!!
