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 #2

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Ford F-150. Approximately 3 years ago, the rear passenger side brakes began to vibrate. The failure occurred at various speeds. The vehicle was taken to the Ford dealer 5 times before a repair was finally made. Currently, the driver side is experiencing the same failure. The ABS is locking the tires in a certain spot and preventing them from properly turning. The consumer stated the ABS seemed to randomly activate on 1 wheel. The turn signal did not always cancel after making a turn. Updated 12/05/07
