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.

Through Divine intervention none of my family have been hurt/injured yet. Ford is next to face a huge fine such as Chrysler was fined this month in July 2015. All reports of odometer and rpm going from 0 to 70, ABS and brake lights staying on, burning smell from front driver's side wheel area, vehicle coming to a sudden stall in traffic, problems with rear van hatch when opened creating "door open light on dash preventing all van door locks from locking, remote opener unable to unlock doors had to use key to unlock driver's door, chimes, interior lights not going off once vehicle is in drive, interior lights staying on after locking vehicle causing battery drain, brake lights staying on when engine is off,causing battery loss resulting in having to jump start the vehicle.

Had Ford run diagnostics and unable to tell why the vehicle was stalling and all the above. Was going to give this vehicle to a needy couple...just happened onto this website and I am thankful that I read the complaints and now I decided giving this couple would be really irresponsible and dangerous so I will not put this vehicle in another's hands except for the junk yard...I WILL NEVER BUY A FORD VEHICLE EVER!!!!
