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.

Grand Marquis 8-cyl

  • 56,122 miles
Had a flat tire and had to install the spare tire that came with vehicle. As soon as I got back on the road, the stability control light, the ABS light and the I-P brake light came on. The car would get only 35 mph. For about 7 to 8 miles, then picked up speed so I could run 50 mph. Until I had the tire replaced. After I had the tire replaced I took the car to a mechanic to have the system reset so the lights would return to normal. The unit that controls this had to be replaced because the difference in tire size had destroyed the control unit. It cost me $313.50 to have a used unit installed, if it had been a new unit, it would have cost over $600. Ford Motor Co. Should have to pay the cost of this replacement because the damage was caused by equipment that was supplied with the vehicle when new.
