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 11 year old daughter was attempting to close the tailgate and didn't see there was something lodged in the crevice. The tailgate popped off and fell on her knee. She is in excruciating pain. We are at the er. This is not safe. There has to be a better safer way to attach the gate. I have owned 3 F150S and have never had this issue. Thank god my 6 year old was out of the vecinity. This could have easily injured or killed him as well.
