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.

2005 Ford F-150 Owner Comments

I recently bought a 2005 Ford F-150 XL, in the two months that I have had this truck I've had nothing but problems with it. The ignition switch has blown fuses, causing the truck to not start, but sometimes it takes 3-4 turns of the key to get it started, either the engine does nothing or it will hesitate for 5-6 seconds before finally turning over. I am also having problems with the truck stalling. Most commonly the stalling occurs while sitting at a red light but it has stalled while I was moving causing me to lose power steering until I could get the truck started again. The passenger door was off line and wouldn't always shut right causing noise and rain to get in. I was missing screws on the door panels witch caused a constant rattling from both sides of the truck. The doors have been fixed by the service department where I bought the truck, but it is still by no means quite in there, and nobody can permanently fix the engine troubles because they don't know why it's happening. This truck is not a safe and dependable way of transportation for me or my one year old son who is sometimes with me.
