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.

Both driver and passenger side review mirrors are not stationary. They are loose and pivot when closing a door. Driver's side also vibrates while driving making it difficult to see out of. This has been reported to Ford dealership where they stated "it is just a poor design with a 'break-away feature' that appears to have been 'overworn' by previous owner, possibly due to use of thinner gaskets in mirror assembly". when asked about longevity and anticipated lifespan of mirrors prior to failure due to wear, they stated it was not a wear-part, however, they also denied it being defective and quoted me $1200 for parts and labor to replace. Warranty would not cover since the defect was mechanical and not electrical. The dealership also stated the mirrors that would be installed would be exactly the same and there was no guarantee this would not happen again. I was unable to get a corrective action or reasoning why my particular mirrors are not satisfactory, but I have heard this is not a new problem for this vehicle. Looking at both of my mirrors, it is obvious they should have some sort of locking mechanism (snap-in-place design) like most vehicles. There has not been any accident involved with this safety issue. This is to document a known problem for awareness purposes and to potentially receive a corrective action for my faulty mirrors. This issue has been on-going, and an arbitrary incident date has been assigned.

1. my truck was sitting in the driveway not being driven or anything and the right rear passenger window fell into the door. 2. if the weather had not been so nice my truck would be full of water or snow. 3. I purchased the extended warranty so it is getting replaced, but I have read about this failure and am planning on owning this truck for long after the warranty is over with. It sounds like even if the part is fixed that it will fail again and will continue to fail until the part is replaced with a stronger more suitable part that will stand up to the forces involved for the life of the vehicle instead of just about 40K miles and until it is out of warranty. This part is close to 400 bucks installed and the truck has 4 windows. That is a potential of 1600 bucks every 40K miles. I would appreciate a recall or a service bulletin to make sure that all of us F150 owners are protected against all this excess cost.
