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.

The vehicle was difficult to steer. At a certain speed the steering wheel would shimmy and there was some play in the steering wheel. Ford had the district manager view the situation. However, it was agreed that problem could not be resolved.

2004 Ford F350 this Ford truck wanders, there is play in the steering wheel. Truck does not go straight down the road. Wanders back and forth, have to keep minding the wheel. Cruise control decreases 10-12 mph for no reason. Both of these problems are serious safety defects. There is a driveline vibration that is continuing to get worse.
