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.

problem #2

Milan 4-cyl

  • 24,000 miles


The date of the occurrence is unknown. The car currently has 24,000 miles on it. The left tail light does not work and the left brake light does not work. The right brake light works when the headlights are off (as in daylight) but does not work when the headlights are on (as at night). The right tail light works when the headlight switch is on but is very bright, indicating that the brake light is on, even though the brake pedal is not depressed. Obviously, there is a defect in the circuitry. All of the long-life led bulbs couldn't have failed at once. The dealer wants to charge us $550 per light unit to supposedly correct the problem. This is a serious design defect safety issue and should result in a recall.

Brake lights will not operate when head lights are on. This problem could have been defective when car was purchased. My dad is 86 years old and bought the car new as dealer demo in 02/ 2013. Hes was notified that his brakes were not working and when he returned the vehicle Ford would not honor the problem, I have investigated this problem on the internet and there are numerous complaints with this year dad could have been seriously hurt if not notified bye a person following him.this cost him approxomitly $1000 dollars to fix I feel Ford should recall these do to this problem.
