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.

2004 Ford F-150 Owner Comments

problem #1

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

When using the heat in my 2004 F-150 super crew FX4 it constantly pours out of my dash. Even when set on floor or defrost it will pour our of the dash. After a few minutes of using the heat, the ride becomes quite uncomfortable. My face gets real hot and eyes get bloodshot from being dried out. I have taken it to Ford 5 times and the first time they could see/feel the problem. Now that they cannot fix it, they tell me that it is normal operation. Which is absolutely false, especially when I own 2 of the same trucks and one does it and one does not.
