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.

The vehicle was taken to the dealership and the driver side front and rear tires were replaced which corrected the problem for a short period of time.

Contact had a problem with the tires on new 2005 Ford F150. He has had to have the tires rebalanced every 100-200 miles.the dealer replaced 3 of the tires because they could not get them to balance within the limits. The first tire was replaced at 56 miles. Now the left front tire has a hunk of tread out of the tire. They were saying vehicle hit something to cause this, but vehicle has not hit anything, and that the tire was a road hazard. Also, it was not covered under the warranty. There was vibration in steering wheel while driving 50-60 mph. They put a stabilizer on the left rear in the frame to try and correct the problem, but the tires still were unbalanced.
