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

After owning the new vehicle from 2001 until 2003, the vehicle ran perfect. However, after that time I noticed a serious problem with the vehicle "loping" while sitting idle at stop lights/stop signs with it in drive with the headlights and ac on. Even though I turn the lights and ac off and try it, the problem still occurs. I have taken it in to a Ford dealerships, they charged me over $100 for replacing a sensor, which did not correct the problem. I took it back and they stated they could not find the problem unless they could hook up the test equipment and observe the readings while driving down the road. Finding this answer unacceptable, I took it to another dealership that basically told me the same thing. To this day, it's still loping at intersections. Now, I have to put it in neutral when I arrive at an stop light to stop the "loping." It's pretty sad when the mechanics at Ford aren't able to fix the problem, or the corporate office blows you off and "sticks by their dealerships" instead of assisting their customers (now ex-customers).
