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.

2003 Ford F-150 Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 172005

F-150 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,500 miles


Took my 2003 F150 XL 4X4 to get a front end alignment the technecian told me he could not do the alignment due to the upper and lower ball joints were bad (worn out) I took me truck to the nearest Ford dealership and was instructed that I voided my warranty when I put on a bigger tire. The original size was a 255/70/16 and I put on 235/85/16 on the original rim. I have 35500 miles on my truck. I feel that this is another way that the dealership and the manufacturer gets away with ripping customers off.
