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 #1

F-150 6-cyl

  • 29,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Ford F150. While driving 60 mph he heard clanging noises in the rear end of the axle. He then pulled over to inspect the vehicle, but he could not identify the cause. After several days while driving, the failure resurfaced. Upon further inspection he noticed that the carrier bearing and the drive shaft were loose. The manufacturer was notified and he was advised that the three year warranty expired, therefore, he would have to purchase a new drive shaft for $750 plus labor. No repairs were made, and the vehicle was not drivable. The failure and current mileages were 29000. Updated 11/12/09 updated 11/16/09
