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.

Seat belt latches rusting, center seat belt (small latch for crossover) came apart and is no longer usable. Because the latches are rusting it is hard to secure the seatbelt.

Vehicle is an 05 Ford F150 FX4 crew cab. Driver's seatbelt unlatching while driving. It happens about every other day of driving everyday. Sometimes it happens on a sudden brake, bumps, or sudden acceleration. Something in the seatbelt latch is not holding the buckle good. If a crash occurs, driver will be ejected from the vehicle eventhough driver is buckled up.

My truck has 56K on it bought it used with 35K on it when it starts runs with high idle and the top end ticks really bad the ticking does not go away at all speeds at a stop light it sounds like a diesel tic tic tic sounds like a lifter is stuck. I put "lucas" in it to try to make it go away then I changed the oil ran about two weeks with no difference and changed it again and no change called Ford dealer they couldn't help they said I would have take it in and get charged $165. Then I changed the spark plugs maybe a fouled plug that wasn't it there goes 120 bucks a couple of weeks ago my wife was driving on the freeway and the drivers side window falls the window regulator broke $140 replaced that already. The passenger seat belt locks up sometimes now to the front the steering wheel shakes really bad when you apply the brakes turned the rotors at Napa $20 new brake pads $90 at kragens balanced tires free I work at a tire shop shaking went away for about three days 350 miles later the shaking is back with a vengeance checked the balancing on the tires they were good rotors are out of shape again still on there now and the shaking is getting worse I cant afford them right now so they will stay there hooked up the snap on ehtos computer to it and registers that two sensors have an open circuit but no explanation for top end noise injectors might be bad.
