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.

problem #1

Mar 152007

(reported on)

F-150 Lariat 5.4 V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,000 miles

This vehicle is only two years old and since I am over on mileage, the dealership is not covering it under warranty. I bought this as a Ford certified vehicle 110 days ago. Just curious if any other 2005 F150 owners have had the same problem.
