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.

1998 Ford F-150 Owner Comments

problem #1

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 108,000 miles


While at home after parking my F-150 in the driveway. An hour later I went to get my kids from school. The right rear tire was flat. I went to change the tire and saw that it was cut. Took the tire off and saw that the rubber and came off from the metal that goes around the rim. Took the tire to the nearest Goodyear dealer. They said that it was a bead separation and thay have never saw a tire do that before. The bad thing is that I have another tire about to do the samething. It is the spare, and I am using it.
