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.

  • 87,000 miles


I had to replace all of the gears and the inside and outside bearings and seals in the rear end - on a truck that had 87,000 miles. Every dealership I've spoken to has talked about the cheap bearings in the front and rear end on these Ford F-150's. 18,000 miles ago I had to fix the front end.

2006 Ford F-150. Consumer writes in regards to rear end overhaul bearings repair the consumer stated the rear pinion seals were replaced two years ago. The consumer believed there was something wrong with the quality of work or there was a manufacturing defect. The dealer and Ford have agreed to cut the bill in half to $650.
