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.

When I would make a sharp left hand turn and use the brakes the brakes would pulsate and would not stop the truck right away. It would act like it had hit ice and its was the middle of summer. It would still move about a foot. I took it to a shop to have it looked at and was told he gets alot of Ford's that do this and they don't have a recall on this. The shop replaced the part in the hub or wheel not sure and now its fine but it cost me over $500 and I only have 50,000 miles on it. I know that parts wear bout but this was a failure of a part that should not have gone bad. Also the electric door lock button in the truck stops working, the open section works but not the lock button.
