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.

I recently bought a 2001 Ford F150 super cab truck, and I saw that it doesn't have any head retraints in the back seats, and also found out that there have been about four complaints about this matter and nothing has been done about it, also had my truck in the dealer shop for four days for a water leak, and was given to me, paid by the dealer a Ford F150 super cab 2005 rental, until my truck was fixed, and I saw that this truck did have the back seats restraints, so I believe this is a very unsafe, not to have these restraints on these other year trucks.I hope that something can be resolve on this problem, because I have grandkids, and it could be very unsafe.and this my first time buying a Ford.please reply to me soon.thank you very much.

No rear seat head restraint in vehicle. Passenger riding in the back seat will impact rear window in the event of an accident.

My Ford F-150 supercrew 4-door pickup truck does not have head restraints in the rear 60/40 split bench seat. This is a safety concern as rear seat passengers will hit their heads on the rear glass in a crash. New trucks of this model are now redesigned and have rear head restraints. Models manufactured earlier do not. When I called Ford customer service to complain of the safety concern of having no rear head restraints and to ask for the new redesigned seats, they said they would not replace the seats. They are ignoring owners with models manufactured before the newly redesigned rear seats. Ford also redesigned the front seats to now include head restraints instead of the old design of taller integrated head restraints. I believe this is also a safety concern in that I cannot adjust the front seat head restraint to properly protect me in a crash. I also wish to have new front seat captain's chairs from the newly designed model's front seats.

Rear seats have no passenger head restraint and I have concerns that in an accident passengers might be injured. Ford has recognized this design flaw in the newer vehicles of the same year model but will not correct the problem in existing vehicles.

Rear seats have no head rests. The glass for the rear window is only inches from the back of a persons head. Since customers purchase these four door pickups to carry more than two people, the chance of someone striking there head on the glass seems be more likely than in extended cab pickups. It is my understanding that Ford is now putting in rear seats with head rests. What about updating those w/out them?

There are no rear headrest in the early models of the supercrew. Ford did place headrest in the same production year after they realized it was a safety issue. I hope that NHTSA can put pressure on Ford to recall those seats that were manufactured without headrest.

This vehicle has a rear seat that does not have head rests to protect rear seat passengers from striking their heads on the rear window in a crash. I understand that Ford has redesigned the seat to include head rests. This is a safety issue, and I feel that Ford should consider modifying the seats of first generation 2001 supercrew models.

Headrests on rear seat are not installed. Vehicles built after dates in November 2000 were equipped with the headrests. Back seat passengers have no protection during a rear end collision. My vehicle should be retrofitted with the headrests at the manufacturers expense.

The seats, the rear in particular, don't have head restraints. In the event of a rear end collision the rear seat occupant's head could break the rear window and strike the metal sill resulting in severe head injury. Ford has addressed this problem in the F150 supercrews built after 10/2000 but hasn't done anything for those who purchased vechicles built prior to the production change.

Rear seats came without headrests, passengers in a crash would hit their heads against the rear window. Even a small child (mine is 9yrs) would hit their head against glass. I understand the newer made trucks come with headrests.

Rear bench seat has no headrests. It is just a matter of time before someone is injured / killed because of this oversite. Reccomend forcing manufacturer (Ford) to retrofit older models with the seats which are currently being shipped with supercrew trucks.

Rear seat do not have headrest and are very close to the rear window. A sudden stop will cause the rear passengers to hit there head on the rear window. I purchased my car in novermber and never was offered the option of getting a headrest option which I would have purchase.
