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.

MKZ 6-cyl

  • 25,000 miles
I was the driver; the accident occured day'sunny around noon;I was in a library parking lot pulling into a parking space -slowly suddenly, the car leapt forward the and "something" seemed to be under the accelerator- it leapt forward I could lt not make the car stop; what stopped the car wasae concrete light post which exploded. If I had not hit the post the car would have gone in to a lake and I might have drowned. I was alone the car - and I had about $10,000 damage to my car. I believe the floor mat shifted and was under the accelerator and I am very distressed. Also -the airbags did not deploy. This needs to be addresssed- I contacted Ford but they said I as not affected by the massive previous recall of floor mats., this floormat issue needs to be addressed or someone will die.
