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.

2009 Mercury Mariner hybrid with 93000 miles driving 50 mph on a six-lane blvd. Hesitates briefly, then accelerator ceases to function completely. Despite the extremely dangerous situation, we managed to maneuver the car off the road to safety. Warning light (triangle with exclamation point) and warning message "stop safely now". the car computer knows there is a problem, why doesn't Ford" they conducted a "customer satisfaction program" for millions of escape and mariner owners for this very issue - throttle body defect - but not hybrids. Why not" it cost us $300 and nearly a multi-car accident. Ford needs to be held accountable for manufacturers defects in all cars, not just some. Putting families in harm's way because Ford doesn't have the integrity to take responsibility for their vehicle issues is completely unacceptable. This should be investigated, and Ford needs to be held liable.
