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.

Brakes bring vehicle to stop then release and car moves forward 4-6' then brakes engage again. Could cause damage and personal injury.

Mariner Hybrid

  • 45,000 miles
In a hard-braking situation, brakes failed - no discernible deceleration at all, pushing harder than I've ever had to before. This made for rear-ending the guy ahead of me. Forensics investigator w/ mech found odb dtcs showed only P0A8D and B1318 - one of which shows a low voltage to ABS system. Multiple reports of this with escape hybrid owners. I wonder if it is related to the Ford Fusion hybrid failures" this occurred at 10-15 mph. What happens at 60? local dealership declares "your brakes check out fine and there's no evidence of brake failure." Really? how about that radiator and grill that need repair and that quarterpanel sticking out of the right side? evidence enough" I'd like to see this issue root-caused before somebody gets seriously hurt.
