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.

My paint job was defective and thin, my windshield was not sealed properly, there are ticking noises from under the dashboard, the front end is too heavy for the added weight to the truck, the transmission stalls the truck when it rolls backwards in drive, the truck shakes at high speeds and has excessive tire wear, which is the only thing that Ford has all but admitted to by extending the excessive tire wear/ride harshness warranty from 1yr/12,000 miles to 3yrs/36,000 miles. Have you ever heard of a car company giving away something unless there was a serious problem with this vehicle.

Excessive tire wear on all four tires in a 9 month time span. Had dealership look at the truck and was told that the alignment was off and it wasn't up to them to take care of the alignment but was told to contact tire manufacturer. While talking to the manufacturer rep on the phone she advised that she had read memos from Ford about problems with the alignment specs on the vehicle. Ford continues to refuse any kind of warranty work.

2005 Ford F150. The contact stated the vehicle has a spare tire which it is the same size as the other tires that are not available. The rim will not fit under the vehicle without the tire on it. The contact was not able to replace the tire because it was on back order. The dealership stated they were not aware when the tire will be available for replacement. This is a N original hankook tire, P235/70R17.. the hankook dealer could not replace the tire either. Ford stated it was a new size tire with a new manufacturer.

At 400 miles the vehicle shook violently when putting pressure on the brakes. This happened on May 18, 2005. Contacted the dealer, and then took the vehicle to the dealer, who claimed the rotors were warped from heat. They got permission from Ford to put on different rotors. After leaving the dealer the brake light came on. The consumer went back to the dealer. They checked and discovered there was no brake fluid in the master cylinder. Left the dealer again, went to apply the brakes and there was no brake fluid in master cylinder, the fluid was in the rims of the vehicle, and on the ground. This wore out the tires and the brakes still were not working properly. Ford was suppose to send a representative to meet with the consumer, and had not done so. Currently, the consumer went to a different dealer, and they just swapped the tires from the front to the back. Then, they changed/ turn ed the rotors. The consumer spoke with manufacturer, who blamed the dealer, but the dealer blamed the manufacturer.

The contact owns a 2005 Ford F150. He purchased the vehicle three weeks ago. The vehicle only had 1800 miles, and it shook badly. He took the vehicle to the dealership, and they said it looked as if chunks had been cut out of the tires. It was the coal mines, where consumer worked, that was the cause of the cuts in the tires. Consumer denied it, claiming he did not work in the coal mines, and driveway was gravel and should not have caused the cuts in the tires. Two or three of the tires had cuts.

  • Automatic transmission

Consumer complained that jack that came with vehicle does not extend high enough so that he can change a flat. The flat tire will come off, but the replacement tire that is inflated will not go on with the jack fully extended. Consumer had a flat on vehicle at on August 4, 2005 around 1:00 am. Consumer had to call for help. He was stranded due to improper jack. He was unable to change the tire. Tow truck driver T came to the scene used his jack to lift vehicle, and tow truck drivers jack was also too short. He had to use a 4X4 piece of wood under jack to change flat. Consumer believed that jack was probably made for a 15 inch tire. This vehicle had 17 inch tires. When changing the flat with the jack supplied with vehicle it fell off of the jack.
