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 #6

  • 136,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Ford F-150. While driving 35 mph and coming to a complete stop, the rear driver side tire separated and rolled into traffic. The vehicle was towed to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the rear rotor and studs failed and needed to be tightened. The contact also stated that he had to also replace the steering rack and pinion due to the failure. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 136,000.

Factory welds on wheels failed causing rapid loss of tire pressure. This has happened two different times on two different wheels.

My factory tires, bf goodrich long trail T/a, on my Ford F-150 king ranch bought new in 2006 lasted only 21,428 miles. They gave me a lousy $236. And it cost me $ replace all 4. now, 18,270 miles later there are less the 4/32 left on the tread. On a recent oil change, a dealer would not rotate my tires because of the ware. Now I am being told - sorry no warranty left! - I am livid! can anything be done?

My 2006 Ford F150 has the positraction rear end. Its went out around 25000 to 30000 miles, while the truck was still under warranty and the dealer fixed it no charge. Now the truck has a little over 62000 miles and the rear end has gone out again. Almost exactly the same amount of miles on the rear end. Warranty was up at 60000 miles so its no longer covered. I think this should be looked into as a recall because this is the second time its happened on the same truck.

Slow air leak in tire. Dealer found a crack in the inside of the wheel next to the tire bead. Crack is only on the inside, vertical face of the wheel. This is the first time for this failure on this vehicle since I owned it. The service person offered to sell me a new wheel. I assume this part is oem and has never been replaced. I ordered the new part.

problem #1

Dec 022006

F-150 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 5,500 miles
During adverse weather conditions (winter ice and snow, cold temps) my wheels had ice freeze in them creating an impossible steering situation. The design of these wheels allows them to hold about an inch of water about 3 inches in length, when this freezes the result is an out of balance wheel, ( in this case 4 out of balance wheels) making them wobble (vibrate) uncontrollably on icy roads. This caused me to experience a terrifying drive for the 17 miles to town. I believe this could cause an accident with a less experienced driver.
