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.

2001 Ford F-150 Owner Comments

I own a 2001 Ford F150 lariet off road pick up truck with a supercab. The rear seats in the truck do not have any headrests. My seven year old daughter constantly hits her head on the rear window because there is no headrest. I am very concerned about what could happen to her if my vehicle was struck from the rear with her in that seat. I can't allow her to sit in the front seat as of yet and can't find any headrest alternatives to correct the problem. I believe that this was a poor design by Ford and I think they know it too since all of the newer models have rear headrests. I never even thought about it until after I purchased the truck. I just thought you should be aware of the problem and wondered if you had any similar complaints. Thanks!
