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.

Rear leaf spring: On the F-150, extend cab, long bed, the left rear leaf spring is over-loaded because the fuel tank ( and the driver ) are on the left side of the vehicle. This causes the vehicle to lean and become unstable. When carring a load, the majority of the weight shifts to the left side and this causes the vehicle to be more unstable. The dealer replaced the spring once but the problem still exist. / left power window: The window sticks all the time. The only time it works properly is when it rains and the track gets wet.

Rear window frame leaks. Three model years it has been going on. Ford is aware as well as engineer dept. Employees of Ford avoid this sliding window type because they're aware of oversized windows that must be hammered into frame to get them installed in the assembly process. Upon my arrival back home after vacation in fla. Ford says "out of warranty" it leaks very heavy during rain.I recognized the leaks at 59,000, and drove home with just over 60,000.
