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

problem #2

Oct 012011

F-150 Supercrew 5.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles


I purchased a 2001 Ford F 150 Supercrew new. I bought it because of my family, my wife, son and daughter. If we went somewhere they each could take a friend and that way there were six seatbelts. Several years ago my truck started rusting under the front doors and on the inside of the bottom of the doors. I have the running boards and the truck has been garage kept and I can't believe the rust all of a sudden about halfway of the front door and it is now where you can stick your hand back in the holes on both sides. Its like a defect in the metal, I think its where they welded a seam. Just wondering if there was ever a recall.
