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.

Issue is non safety related. Issue with known manufacturers defect covered under warranty that cannot be repaired and will not be replaced. Purchased vehicle new in September of 2003. Desired feature was hard tonneau cover to keep bed dry and secure. Cover leaked. Took back to dealer after approximately a year and a half to get repaired and was told that "leaking" was not a covered item per Ford warranty group and that it was expected. Told to resolve with customer service if had further questions. Called customer service to clarify why they didn't consider leaking a covered item and was told it was covered and they would work with dealer to understand why not fixed. Got call back next day stating that Ford was aware of leaking issues and while should be a warranty covered item, they did not know how to fix or if they ever would. Was told to check back periodically to see if any fix had been issued. Ford is not honoring their stated warranty. It has been 2 years since my 2003 was put on the market and still no fix for the issue which Ford says they have been aware of. My $600 spent on a tonneau cover to keep the bed dry is wasted and Ford is still selling this tonneau cover to other consumers.
