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 #1

F-150 XLT 5.4L

  • Manual transmission
  • 129,252 miles


So, I bought this truck about 4 months ago. Running rough. Was told it was vacuum leak. Every possible line, hose, valve, etc. was replaced. Still cuts out completely any old time it feels. Has gotten me rear ended twice.

Once, my 5' 95lb self had to push this 5000lb truck out of the highway. Tried to contact Ford as there is no known solution and I have spent far more on repairs than I ever imagined, with NO IMPROVEMENT and NO CHANGE. Can't even pass inspection, which has resulted in $400+ in fines for non-inspection. No other vac leaks. New gas tank, sending unit, fuel pump, filter, air filter, intake, injectors are 100%, COPS are all 100%, New hoses, lines, valves, pcm, iac, pcv, egr, etc. NO IMPROVEMENTS.

I have TWO kids and I cannot afford any more wasted money. Nor can I afford to risk our lives because some greedy corporate fu*k thinks his money is more important than my families lives. There are no REAL contact numbers and no functioning email addresses currently for Ford. Henry Ford would roll over in his grave.

You are NOT an American Company. You are disgustingly low, barely human, cold, greedy, ignorant, pathetic, wanna be fat cats who really f'd up. You will pay eventually. Karma is a BITCH. I hope you all get charged with every single injury that this bullshit causes, every moment that each customer wasted on your piss poor product. You are criminals. You deserve jail time. This is an utter show of complete disregard for human life, and let me tell you something, it is a CRIME and eventually You will be forced to sleep in the bed you made. I wish you only what you have given back. From injury to financial ruin. May your own actions and disregard fall back on your own. Good luck sleeping at night. All criminals eventually get caught. Can't wait.
