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.

Original flywheel broken. Told will cost $1K to $1,4K to replace that and starter B/C flywheel 'probably' damaged starter. Truck won't start sometimes, and grinds when I try to start it. Was stranded 2 times and had to be towed.

I had a sudden failure of the power brakes on my '05 Ford F-150 due to a vacuum valve that is located on the back side of the motor midway down of the motor on the back side between motor and firewall. This was not a warranty item due to my truck having 50,000 miles on it. The remedy is to get the 30$ valve and remove the top half of the motor just to get to the vacuum valve, due to the labor intensiveness of the job labor is $400. Luckily I did not have an accident but you will only have manual brakes when this vacuum line comes off in addition to a rough running truck.

: the contact stated the vehicle's factory key was defective and does not start the vehicle. The vehicle included 3 keys; 2 good and 1 defective. Any time a good key was used to lock the door, the defective key does not work at all when attempting to start the vehicle. The defective key worked if it used to lock the door before starting up. The vehicle was taken to a dealer, who programmed another key, but the problem persisted. The vehicle was brought back to the dealer who expressed that another key could not be reprogrammed because of the way the vehicle was manufactured. The manufacturer was contacted three times and suggested that the vehicle be taken to another dealer. The other dealer could not duplicate the problem, and offered no resolution.
