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.

2006 Ford E-450 Owner Comments

problem #2

We have a 2006 Ford F-450 that was purchased in November 2005. In October 2008 the "water in fuel" warning light came on. The Ford dealer found no water and replaced a fuel water module at no charge. Now the truck loses power without notice and we are told that the coating on the interior of Ford diesel fuel tanks corrodes and collects as sediment in the fuel system. The sediment, collects at the bottom of the fuel tank and is sucked into the fuel system. The truck cannot be driven safely. Ford claims there is no warranty for this malfunction.

2006 Ford E-450 bus, gas tank delamination with 46,000 miles causing vehicle to stall and stop nearly causing an accident at an intersection at night. A police officer stopped and set up flares, and we avoided a serious accident. Ford denied claim stating the gas tank delamination was caused by the government's relaxation on diesel fuel additives. It caused us $3500 to repair the vehicle due to a defect in the fuel tank coating by Ford.
