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 seats do not have headrests or any type of head support. The rear window glass is immediately behind the seats. Rear seat passengers can hit their heads on the rear window. Ford has added headrests to current production vehicles so they obviously agree with this major safety concern. I feel Ford should recall all 2001 F150 supercrews and change the rear seat to the current seat they are now using.

There is a safety issue with the rear seats not having a head rest, the seats are to low and in case of an accident the passangers on the back are going to hit there heads on the rear window, I have too kids and I don't want for them to get hurt in case of an accident; it could be a severe injury in a rear end collicion. Thanks for your time.

Ford has updated the rear seats with head rests in later 2001 modles. The earlier models should be retrofitted with these head rests too. It's a major safety issue.

I am concerned with the safety factor of the lack of rear seat headrests. After 6 months of sales of the new supercrew model, Ford altered the design and now has headrests. I am interested in a retrofit kit from Ford that adds headrests.

The newer models have the rear head rests. Obviously, Ford recognized the problem. Only a matter of time until a fatality due to this unbelievable safety oversight. No head rests" if that's not a substantial safety risk that poses a real and present danger to the public and that deserves our government's attention, then what's the point of the NHTSA" thank you.

Ford Motor Company is now installing rear seats with head restraints. I am concerned that the alack of rear seat head restraints is unsafe and will likely cause more injuries and possible death in a major crash. I fee that Ford Motor Company should recall the affected vehicles and repace the rear seats with the new model seats containing the head restraints.

Lack of a head restraint for the rear seat passengers. On occasion it is possible for an occupant to hit their head on the rear window. This is a severe safety concern. Ford has come out with a new seat design which includes head restraints. I feel they should retrofit earlier models built this year with the newer seats. Even if it were for the labor charge to change the seats. Thank you.

This is a new four door model Ford pickup truck with a full size rear seat. The problem is that the rear seat does not have any head rests/restraints on the back of the seat. During a fast stop or accident passengers in the back seat will strike there head on the back window causing serious injury. Ford has just changed the truck design to include head rests/restraints on its F150 supercrew but will not recall/replace all the rear seats made prior to the change. All F150 supercrews made up to approx. Oct. 2000 need this correction. Calling Ford has not helped in the matter.
