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.

Would like Ford to fix this problem. Had a body shop say if they repainted the hood it would only last about 6 months and be right back.

F-150 LB

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,565 miles

The tailgate at the bottom is rusting. It has rusted so bad that the tailgate has detached from the hookup at the bottom to the bed of the truck. Only fix there is, is to get a new tailgate. Its a pain since you have to lift the whole tailgate door up to ensure it latches.
