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.

The contact owns a 2002 F150 pickup truck. While performing routine maintenance on his vehicle he found chips of metal and pitting on the front rotor. It is tearing the tread on the front tires, and tore up the inside pad. When you stopped the vehicle, it was pulsing as though you had a flat tire. The current and failure mileages were 79,000.

The front brake rotors are so warped that when applying the brakes the front of the vehicle shakes, and the vehicle is difficult to control. Owner contacted the manufacturer, and was informed that what the driver was experiencing was normal.

problem #1

F-150 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 409 miles
Vehicle has a gap on driver's side door over the top. The gap causes noise inside the cabin of the vehicle while driving. It makes it hard to keep the vehicle on the road. Manufacturer was contacted with no results. The dealer installed a rubber sealer around the gap but this seemed to cause more noise. The radio, cd player and tv in the rear of the van stopped working. The rotors warped and caused vibrations when braking. Water had gotten into the left side park lamp. The seat belt warning chime and light failed intermittently, the dealer replaced the module.
