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 #3

  • Automatic transmission

I purchased a used 2001 Ford pickup on 10/26/06. On January 10,2007 it caught fire while being park over night. I reported the fire to Ford and their response is that the damage was too sever to verify any mfg defect. I received the recall notice the following week. Ford should notify buyer's sooner!
