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.

problem #1

F-150 HD V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,000 miles


I already have a complaint on this sight in regards to my transmission going out at 38000 miles. I started hearing a metallic sound when i'd drive over speed bumps, etc. I took the truck to Ford and they told me it was the tie rod on the left side going bad so I had them replace both sides. We all know what happens if they break. It seems they are made to last until the warranty is up and then they fall apart. I thought for the price of the truck that it would last a long time without problems. I guess I was wrong.
