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.

problem #1

Apr 042007

F-150 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,000 miles
2004 F-150 supercrew 2wd automatic. Transmission requires rebuild at 54000. Bought new all seals replaced within 2-3 months due to fluid leaks. Slipping began less than 40,000. Fluid flush alleviated the issue, but slipping returned. At 60 mph trasmission slipped into neutral momentarily at random times. Power rear sliding window does not work; failed within first 2-3 months; no computer code to detail the issue so Ford will not fix regardless of confirmed failure and warranty coverage. Rotors had to be replaced on first break maintenance.
