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

Jun 302006

F-150 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,000 miles


: the contact stated the front driver side seat belts always had problems since the vehicle was purchased, at only 13000 miles. The driver side seat belt buckle would only lock after several attempts. Eventually, a piece in the seat belt connector fractured and the belt will not latch at all. The belt and latch are free of other dirt and contaminants. There were no pictures or invoice available.
