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.

On the above date - September 28, 2011, I became aware that the gas in the gas tank was moving around (sloshing) whenever the vehicle stopped or started moving from a dead stop. I contacted Ford customer relationship in Florida and they were not helpful at all. I talked to them 3 different times - - -they couldn't tell me if there are baffles in the tank to prevent the sloshing - they didn't even know what a baffle was - -would not direct me to someone with more technical knowledge. Last contact was Thursday, Oct. 13,2011, yesterday - - was on the phone 32 minutes with an individual who couldn't find the answer and wouldn't try to find someone who could give me an answer. A gas tank should not have a problem such as this in 39 months of ownership. Gas tanks don't "wear out" in this period of time. And I can't get any answers. There has been no accident or damage to this vehicle. Does my vehicle have baffles in the gas tank"? is there a safety issue here with the sloshing of the gas? if there are baffles why would they suddenly stop functioning? would this problem be covered in the vehicle warranty"
