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.

problem #2

Oct 102007

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 17,000 miles


Once, while shifting from park to reverse and also once while shifting from park to drive the engine has gone to (nearly?) full throttle. Both times I was able to avoid and accident by standing on the brake and shifting back to neutral (throttle returned to idle).

problem #1

Jan 152006

F-150 4WD

  • 500 miles
2006 F150 fx 4 -4X4 super cab 5.4 L. I traded the exact same truck in an 04 model year for this 2006. Ford has refused to fix ( for 3 model years ) : drive train vibration, drive train howl/whine. The 04 was in the shop 6 times with no fix. My 06 in the dealership now. I haven't made the first payment or the first oil change. Problems not present on test drive. Started at 500 miles. Other problems include : brake pedal is mush. It never firms up. It will go to the floor. Doors wont shut without slamming. Super cab doors wont shut tight without pushing top in. My best fuel economy is 13 mpg highway with the cruise on. The "new" F150's are a disgrace to the Ford name. $ 38,000 P.O.S. !! my last Ford.
