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.

2012 Ford E-150 Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 012011

E-150 8-cyl

  • 1,500 miles


This problem has occurred 12-15 times. After the engine is turned on and put into drive, it starts to buck/hesitate like it is not getting gas. Sometimes this is violent and other times soft. It is not bad gas. Sometimes it will go for 6-7 weeks without doing it and other times it will happen two days in a row. Dealer will not attempt to fix it because after keeping it over night they could not duplicate the problem and would not take my word for it. If they order a part and it does not fix the problem Ford will not re-imburse dealer so I am suppose to risk my life pulling out into traffic with a truck that might not make it. Truck has 4500 miles. Bought new at end of October 2012. There is no read out on the computer when this happens. Love the truck but not this safety issue.
