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.

My 5.4 liter has terrible throttle response at low speeds. The motor has a long lag time, from the time you press the gas pedal until the motor revs and the truck takes off. I have been in a couple of close calls or near misses due to this. If in an emergency operation you need to step on the gas and get out of the way of another vehicle, it has slow throttle response and is dangerous. The dealer seems to have no real fix.
