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.

2001 Ford E-250 Owner Comments

While driving at approx 30mph on a rural road, the rear spare tire fell off of my 2001 Ford E250 van. Tire was suspended below rear vehicle. The local Ford dealer in grants pass or said the cable was corroded causing the tire to fall off. Here in southern Oregon we do not use salt on our roads during the winter and we have less rainfall than northern Oregon so corrosion fault is questionable. The cost to replace cable was not realistic and if they used a quality cable, this should never have happened. I was lucky I was not driving on a freeway when this happened.
