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.

At 15,000 and 30,000 mile scheduled maintenances a brake hose inspected should be done. In our case it was completed and according to the dealership there were no found problems. However, when we were driving around a curve and there was a teenager on a four wheeler on our side of the road and we braked to avoid the child...we had no brakes on our 2005 F-150 supercrew. We were able to avoid injuries with our family inside the vehicle and the child we almost hit due to the brake failure. Upon towing the vehicle in they said that the brake hose into the intake was worn and blew off when we depressed the brake fast. I asked why this wasn't checked and they said because it was too hard to get to for a physical inspection during maintenance. The service tech also said he has seen this with several F150's. I see this as being a serious danger for these brake hoses to blow off and not be where they can be checked. We are paying for maintenance that is not being done not to mention peoples lives are at stake.

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,000 miles
: the contact stated upon starting the vehicle in the morning, without any warning signal to indicate brake failure, the brake pedal was depressed and would not go all the way to the floor. The vehicle was towed to the dealership who determined a vacuum line had disconnected due to oil presence in the connection. The rubber hose was replaced. The contact denied any traces of oil in the surrounding of the vacuum hose connection. Updated 11/03/06.
