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 solenoid that releases the shifter when the brake is applied failed. It happened when I was sitting in a traffic jam, so it prevented me from moving once the jam cleared...a very dangerous situation. Dealer had to replace the entire shifter mechanism to the tune of $1200...not just the little solenoid. Why do Ford products all seem to come as an "integrated" assembly where you replace half the car for a minor component failure?
