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 2003 Ford F-150. The contact observed a defect with the tire socket wrench. The wrench was equipped within the vehicle to assist with tire repairs; however, it was too small to loosen the lug nuts that secured the spare tire. The contact was unable to remove the spare tire from the vehicle in order to check the air pressure level. The manufacturer was notified of the defect. The failure and current mileages were 53,000.
