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.

Driver┐'s side exterior mirror vibrates when going down the road. This distracts the driver┐'s vision and could cause an accident. It gives you the false impression that there is a vehicle moving into your blind spot. This has been reported to the dealer three times and has not been corrected to date.

My 2006 Ford F-150 super cab pickup, 2X4, V-8 engine, has a major problem with the outside mirrors falling towards the ground causing me not to be able to pick up moving traffic while driving down the highway...I have taken the truck to three different Ford dealerships and they refuse to give me a trade-in on a truck with power mirrors...I have had (3) new sets of mirrors installed on this truck already since I purchased the truck in January 2006....I have had a restriction put on my drivers license stating that I must have a right hand mirror on all vehicles I drive due to having amblyopia in my right eye....can't see anything when my mirrors point down towards the ground...shouldn't' have to take a beating on the trade-in since I bought the truck in good faith believing that Ford would stand behind its warranty...they are not reimbursing me for the time or gas to take the truck in for repairs and I believe three sets of mirrors are enough....I want this to be documented in case that I have a minor or major accident that is involving a life because I couldn't see out of my mirror while changing a lane.....

: the contact stated the side view mirror glass on both mirrors did not stay stationary while driving over rough roads at any speed. The mirrors pointed downwards, obscuring the view of the driver. The vehicle was taken to a service dealer, where the mirrors were replaced. The problems persisted, so the vehicle was taken to a second service dealer, who informed the contact that a second replacement would do no good. The manufacturer was notified. Updated 10/31/2006 - the manufacturer refused any assistance.
