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 #1

Aug 082003

E-150 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,250 miles
When on a small hill and stopped at a red light when you take your foot off the brake (when the light turns green) it rolls backwards. Eng 4.6L-V8. Customer service at dealer told me this is a characteristic of this particular transmission. This is the same transmission as some Expedition and they will do the same thing. It almost rolled back and hit a car. Customer relationship at dearborn wants me to test drive another E-150 to see if it does the same thing from the dealer. Currently, I'm waiting for the dealer to get back to me on this.
