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.

2014 Ford Transit Connect Owner Comments

Transit Connect 4-cyl

The easy fuel system leaks badly especially over 75 degrees. I can smell the strong odor of gasoline. In addition it set off the mil light for the "small leak" in the evap system. It has now set a permanent code for this problem. The problem is the flap does not tightly seat enough to contain the gas vapor and the unit out gasses badly. It could be a major fire hazard. Any open flame, spark on a job site, or just some goof with a lit smoke could set off a fire ball. At present the unit is parked, as I am afraid to drive it less it become a liability problem for our firm. What is needed is a standard fuel cap to totally seal the tank. There is no way to get one from Ford to fix this problem.
