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 #2

Dec 082003

F-150 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,480 miles


Passenger side rear tire broke off at the axle, while going approximately 35 mph, causing the truck to spin out. Unexplainable, did not have an accident for this to happen.

problem #1

Jan 082003

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,500 miles
Rear wheels have enough play in them that there is a noticeable clunk when turning. Took the truck to the dealer and the end play of the axles are.020. Ford manufacturer said up to.030 is tolerable and I will have to live with the clunking sound. I did not pay $30,000 for a truck to listen to a clunking sound!
