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.

2002 Ford F-150 Owner Comments

problem #1

May 312007


  • 143,000 miles


The contact owns a 2002 Ford F150 harley davidson. On January 3, 2008, a spark plug blew out. On May 31, 2008, while at a car wash, the contact heard a loud noise. The vehicle was turned off and towed to the dealer. The dealer stated that the same spark plug from the solenoid had blown again, which also blew the engine head. The repair is expected to cost between $2,200, and $5,000. Also, in December of 2007, the sunroof motor shorted and no longer works. She was informed that the repair would cost $1,000, and has not used the sunroof since. The current and failure mileages were 143,000.
