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.

problem #2

F-150 Lariat 4.6L - 8 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 107,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Started with turning on the headlights and my dash lights not coming on until they felt like it. Then the last time I went to start the car, key turns and normal dash lights come on, head lights but it isn't going to start. I got battery power but Nothing else!

F-150 4.6L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles

The truck never started right since the day I bought it used with 60K miles. I replaced every part from a starting standpoint. Starter, solenoid, battery & cables, alternator and it still had electrical issues!
