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

Jun 192009

F-150 5.4L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 101,000 miles


Put my ford f-150 in the shop to get the spark plugs changed on June 11,2009. Haven't seen it yet and today is June 20,2009. They had to take the head off because the spark plug broke off inside it, when they put it back together and service light kept coming on. Here to find out they fried the brain. They put a new one in but the truck still isn't running right. We are to leave for vacation today, didn't have a truck so I had to get a rental no cost to me, thank god. So far my bill for this is 2,500.00, and they still don't know what they did to it. Now they have to call Ford to help figure it out. It ran great before I took it to the shop, I was only getting the plugs done,because it has hundred thousand miles on it. That taught me a lesson you don't fix what isn't broken. Thanks Ford. What a wonderful truck you built there.
