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

F-150 8-cyl

While driving down a 2 lane road in my 2002 Ford F-150 "harley davison" pick-up truck doing the posted speed limit (50 mph), I quickly tried to avoid from rearending a mid-model 1990 Ford aerostar passenger van, at a speed between 35-45mph. After impacting the rear end of the van, the air bag(s) on my air bag equiped vehicle "did not deploy". my seat belt was being used. The insurance company and myself had to take a loss of the vehicle, due to the extent of damage done to my vehicle.
