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.

2009 Ford E-150 Owner Comments

problem #1

E-150 8-cyl

(defective lock/handle) this incident occurred when the door was in a lock position and a passenger tried to open the door. Something snapped. Then the door was unable to open even after the door is unlocked. After my friend did me a favor to fix it, the same thing happened on the passenger door. The door was locked then my coworker tried to open the door before I unlocked it from the car alarm, then a component on the handle snapped. So now I have to open the door from the back or side door.
