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

Jan 222007

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,000 miles


- the contact owns a 2004 Ford F150. The vehicle was in the repair shop for a slow leak on the front passenger side tire so the mechanic plugged the tire. While mounting the tire to the vehicle it exploded. The explosion was caused by separation of the tire beads. The mechanic mounted the spare tire. After driving ten miles the spare tire blew also due to tire bead separation. The tire beads were completely severed in both failures. The failed tire brand is hankook dynapro, size, P235/75R17. The contact was driving 5 mph when the spare tire failed. Updated 2/22/2007 - updated updated 04/16/07
