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 glass doctor that fixed the back glass said they have to fix them all the time. I think that ford should send me the money that I spent to fix it. this is the first ford f150 I have ever had and if ford don't send money to pay for this I will never buy another ford.

Rear window has a steady stream coming down onto floor and rear seat. Cost $300 to have auto glass company pull rear window and put new seals in. Was due to cheap seals when the truck was made.
