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.

Middle seat belt on Ford F-150 supercrew 4WD innards popped out of seat belt sheath. This seat used very little. Ford said even though there was a recall in 2001, I believe, on the front seat belts that there is nothing on the back middle. This is a safety hazard and should not occur.

Recall id NHTSA: 01V227001 - seat belt buckle comes undone while driving - I brought my 2001 Ford F150 into the dealership to repair the seat buckle which periodically came undone while driving. The dealership "inspected" the buckle and said there was no problem with the buckle. The seatbelt buckle continues to spontaneously become disconnected while driving. I took my F150 into the dealership today to have it actually repaired. Ford would not fix the seat buckle since it had already been "inspected." Bottom line, I feel that Ford should repair the faulty seat buckle.

My husband was driving our 2001 Ford F150 supercrew lariat on 4/14/04. He was struck from behind by a Dodge neon going approximately 70 mph. My husband was going 35 mph. The safety belt did not latch nor did the airbag deploy, resulting in my husbands being thrown forward and hitting his head at great force on the windshield. The force of the crash totalled my truck, cracking and bending the frame. Had either safety feature worked, my husband would not be injured today. Four weeks later he suffers from short term memory loss, extreme anger and mood swings and has soft tissue damage to his neck and vertebrae. I have contacted Ford and am waiting for a response. RQ04011.
