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 contact owns a 2006 Ford F-150. While driving 40 mph, the contact heard a rattling noise underneath the vehicle. The dealer stated that the A/C compressor was separating. The dealer made the replacement, however, the noise continued. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer, but they were unable to determine the cause of failure. In addition, the vehicle failed to start. As of September 24, 2007, the dealer had not repaired the vehicle. The failure mileage was 495 and current mileage was 23,900.

The truck was delivered on 8/12 in late evening when it was cool, on the next day it was discovered that the air conditioning did not cool properly. It showed no colder than 60 degrees on max air in the left middle vent with all others closed and with 95 degrees outside temperature. When returned to the dealer on the next morning, the service order showed "no trouble found". they do however show that refrigerant(R134) was added which is odd as there was no trouble found. Later it was admitted to me that there is a problem with the air conditioning in these trucks, particularly the recirculation switch on the air control panel in the truck which does not stay engaged. It seems that you must re engage the switch each time the truck is started although this does not always work. This is dangerous if you are unfamiliar with the truck, as outside air is being brought in at all times thus keeping the defrost from working properly as well. Foul air or road fumes coming into the truck to an un suspecting driver. I was told that Ford is aware that it is a problem, but has to this date offered no solution. I believe based on the response from Ford, that this has been a problem they are aware of on 2006 trucks and the public is un aware.
