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.

2004 Ford E-150 Owner Comments

problem #2

Feb 162007

E-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,000 miles


I was driving down interstate 91 in mass. Doing 65 miles per hour and everything was fine until I felt a slight vibration and with no warning my rear right wheel just snapped off. I was lucky to be able to stop the vehicle and keep it from rolling over or creating a pile up of traffic. When I had gotten out to look I found that all 5 lugs were snapped off and broken. There has to be some sort of defect with these bolts. My fear is that someone else may get killed. Now I am in a process of trying to have it repaired and everyone including Ford is passing the blame on someone else. Please help me.
