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.

2001 Ford E-150 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 072015

E-150 HD 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


Having read that this is a problem that's not confined to my truck!! I feel that Ford has the responsibility. In good faith to rectify this problem. I've have taken the truck to a body shop and the estimate to repaint the hood right is $ 1500,00. The reason being that they would have to remove the front window and most times that causes it to break. Which brings the cost up higher. We could have a cheap job done that might last 3 or 4 years and b right back to where we r now. If we trade it n of course the bad paint lowers our trade n value. Ford may say it's a 2001 it's time for a new one, but with the low miles u can c it is use for truck purposes only. Hauling firewood, towing a boat to the lake and hauling stuff around town. Maybe 10,000 miles a year. We don't need a new one we need Ford to b the company that consumer reports thinks they are! Things like this will loose that Best Buy recommendation fast and I am on the panel who helps rate products for them and I will b call CR I f Ford doesn't do something fast!
