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

F-150 XLT 5.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150,612 miles


My Ford F150 truck steering column was broken. I took my truck to a repair shop to have it repaired. The shop had two other Ford trucks there for the same problem at the same time and when I picked up my truck they had another Ford truck with the same problem. This was just one non Ford auto repair shop. My truck has 150,000 miles. My repair was $660 for a used steering column. If this is a chronic problem with Ford trucks I do not think I will buy another Ford truck. I think Ford knows they have a problem with their steering column.
