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 XLT Sport 4.6 V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles


Failure of three out of four tie rod ends. I lost the right outer while driving, this is very dangerous.

Everyone I talk to with one of these trucks has had the same problem.

The tie rod ends are too weak, there is no fail-safe feature to keep them from coming completely apart when the fail, and they will!

I have read of a class action law suit pending in u. s. a. and a successful one in Canada.

Also I have read of using a Moog replacement part as they are much stronger and will not blow apart if they fail.
