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

Mar 272003

E-150 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 43,371 miles


With only 43,000 miles, and 21 months old, I had to replace outer tie rod, drag link, and ball joints on our 2001 Ford E-150 van. The vehicle has only been used as a private vehicle. Maintenance has been per Ford schedule, and performed by the same Ford dealership which did the state inspection which lead to the part replacements. While Ford did contribute about 40% towards the work, it seems suspension and steering parts wearing out so prematurely is a defect which should be concidered for recall. Pursuing further with Ford only resulted in phone call claiming that the wear rate was not unusual.
