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.

The frame broke where the front differential mounts, this let the front axle twist and you can not steer the truck!!! I think this is very dangerous, if you were going over 5 mph. You could not turn.Ford factory rep. Says the truck is out of warranty so not there problem, they will not do anything about it. Ford should fix this at there expense as this a safety concern. How many other Ford pick ups have had this same problem but not reported it because they did not how to or who to complain to. The ntsb should look into this very carefully to see if this is a major problem.

Moderate to severe wheel vibration in steering since 2006. It remains unrepaired after several attempts by the dealership where vehicle was purchased. I'm now being told to "live" with the shimmy and it should be "expected".

My new F150 has a terrible shudder in the steering wheel for the first 10 miles after the car is started. If it is cold out, it is very difficult to control the vehicle above 50 mph. Ford has replaced the tires, but they replaced them with the same pirellis and it did not help.

: the contact stated while driving 60 mph, there was a vibration within the suspension. The vehicle was seen by a dealer and the tires were balanced. Afterwards, the vehicle continued to have a vibration. The service manager attributed the problem to the basic harmonics of the vehicle. A vibration analyzer was placed on the vehicle to record any suspension issues, but no vibrations were detected. Updated 04/11/06.

: the contact stated the vehicle has several problems. While driving at no specific speed, the front end vibrated and rattled. The vehicle was taken to the local dealership for inspection. However, the problem could not be duplicated. The second problem occurred while entering a curve at 55mph, the right rear tire blew. The tire was not inspected for the cause of the failure although, the tire was replaced. The third problem is the cooling system bolts were loose. The vehicle was taken to the dealership for routine inspection and maintenance when the looseness of the bolts was discovered. The dealership tightened the bolts for repair.
