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.

Last week truck suddenly became very hard to turn going around corners. Steering wheel locked up and I almost went over an embankment. Hit or miss so I never know when it will go out. Thankfully did not have my 2 young children! a week later (11/29/15), truck suddenly starts to violently shake if I go over 50 mph! scared the dickens out of me! hoping to limp it to a dealership and trade it in. Not safe for me to drive. I have put 20K miles on it in 2 years and has been regularly serviced. What gives"!"

The contact owns a 2006 Ford F-150. The contact received a recall notice for the brake boost vacuum hose and took the vehicle in for repairs. A few days later, he noticed that the rear bumper was hanging down slightly. After further inspection, he also noticed that the rear quarter panel on the passenger side was dented. He called the dealer and they stated that the damage must have been done after the repairs were made. The manufacturer stated that each dealer was responsible for damages done at the time of repair and advised him to speak with the dealer for compensation. The vehicle has not been repaired. The failure mileage was 18,950 and current mileage was 19,000. Updated 09/15/08 updated 09/18/08.
