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.

I have not had an accident yet, but several soon will! I have a 2007 Lincoln Mkx (same as Ford edge and same problem according to the dealer). When on a hill, even a relatively slight incline, and you take your foot off the brake to go to the gas after a stop, it rolls backward! it acts like a car with a clutch-even though it is an automatic. I have never in 50 years of driving had an automatic that did this rather than hold itself for that split second until you can make the switch from brake to gas!. the dealers answer is that Ford has said nothing about it and it" meets all specs". talk with Ford dealers informed me that edge owners have the same problem. The Ford consumer line says it is "within engineering specs". they also suggested putting left foot on the brake and right to gas for faster RPM to avoid it! one service manager opined that the specifications were set so low at idle, to try and get mileage estimates within the required regulatory guidelines, that it did not have enough idle speed to hold the car on an incline, like most automatics, because of its weight! this is an accident waiting to happen, if it has not already! although rolling back into someone else's vehicle close behind you on an incline may not result in serious injury, it certainly will cause expensive repairs and unnecessary "road rage" between the drivers possibly resulting in injuries or death! Ford should not be allowed to "cheat" on gas mileage requirements by reducing vehicle idle to the point of creating an unnecessary safety situation!
