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.

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Driving down hwy 35W South bound by lakeville, Minnesota. I heard slight grinding noise from front end. I braked and slowed down and took immediate exit from free way on exit ramp. While I entered exit ramp then front end of my 2002 Ford F150 FX4 dropped to the pavement and tire blew. Upon inspection the factory aluminum rim had split in two causing the tire to blow.
