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.

Well, I'm under warranty... but after reading other post what do I do when it goes out... get an extended warranty??? I'll pray... but man, am I disappointed cause I just bought or paying for a 2004 Ford 150 from a used car lot.. It's pretty, real pretty with the tinted windows, nice24" rims and ranch bumper...but has a ticking noise... And so they told me to bring it in and I will and they'll fix it but after reading other post- I know the sound will reoccur again, sad ... sad I tell .. The Ford folks dropped the ball on this one...
