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 #3

Nov 042003

E-150 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,000 miles


Purchased the vehicle late 2001 and has been in 6 times for new rotors and breaks due to vibration when braking. Ford has covered it so far, and the dealership just tells me that because the van is heavy in the front that it is a common problem. I feel this is a design flaw in the vehicle. Who can afford a $600 brake job every 4 to 5 months?

Front rotors warp, and continuously had to have rotors changed every two to four months, causing tires to wear out.
