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.

The truck was not running. When the door was opened the flames, from the burning seat shot up and burnt the carpet and door panel, before it could be put out. The controls on the seat were completely melted. It still has a smell of an electrical fire.

Normal use of my 2005 Ford F-150 in the past two years has lead to a few item I believe can be a safety issue. The latest is the drivers seat breaking its lower frame and seat pad tray. Ford has yet to fix this issue as they claim parts are not available at this time. The seat is "rocking" during normal driving and is a concern of mine if it should totally fail while the vehicle is in use leading to a crash. It is also at a slight tilt causing me to sit in a very uncomfortable position. It has been a month since I took the truck in to have it repaired, but the parts are still on order to fix it. This is a un-reasonable amount of time to have to wait. Also 3 out of the five windows of my truck have broken, this results in the window regulator breaking causing the window to drop to the bottom of the door. This leaves me and my vehicle open to the weather and/or being unsecured if driving in a less than safe area. The windows have been fixed in the same day without having to wait for parts as the dealer has stated "we keep the parts available as it is a known problem". but they can not fix the other two until they break as Ford will not allow them to unless they break. As this is a known problem it seems to me the issue should be fixed before any other windows fail.
