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.

My wife and I had returned to the car after shopping. I started the car and drove to the first stop sign. We were on city streets in the town of nashville Indiana. The car was normal. I went to the next stop sign and the car also acted normal. As I approached the third stop sign and was applying the brake the car started accelerating. The loud engine noise was also noticed by my wife. I said something is wrong with the car, the engine is racing all by itself while I am trying to brake the vehicle. The vehicle was trying to move so I had to put extreme pressure on the brake pedal I looked at the engine RPM to see what was taking place and the reading was close to 3000 RPM. I held my foot very firmly on the brake pedal and took the transmission out of gear and shut the car off. I sat at the stop sign for a few moments because of the strange nature of the situation and I wasn't sure what to expect. I put the transmission into park and I restarted the car and everything acted normal. A similar sequence of events occurred periodically over the years of ownership up to the current date. The car throttle also has gone into a mode where it would not respond to the gas pedal, while driving it. It had to be shut down and restarted and it responded properly. No date or mileage to reference. This weekend I started the vehicle in the garage and the "wrench" problem light illuminated in the dash panel and the vehicle would not respond to the gas pedal. It was not drivable and had to be towed to dealership. My extended warranty expired May 2015 do to months, not milage. I am now required to pay for a new etb unit and installation. Similar complaints have been registered with this make, model and vintage vehicle

The car lost power and dropped speed. Wrech icon was lit on dash but it wasn't obvious on page 10 of owners manual. Found icon on page 13 and took car back home along back roads as it wasn' T running up to speed to stay on highway. Looked online for similar issues and contacted Ford at 888-392-3673 for possible "customer assistance program." Was told that car was not on list but keep all receipts in case it does go on a recall list.
