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.

2007 Ford F-150. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle passenger assist handle broke off. The consumer stated his wife fell while attempting to enter the front passenger side of the vehicle. She was using the passenger assist handle located at the post between the door and the windshield. She had one foot on the running board and had just started using the assist handle to enter the vehicle when the assist handle broke off and sent her back from the vehicle. Fortunately, she still had one foot on the ground and was able to catch herself and was not hurt. The part was replaced at a cost of $ $213.86.

Water leaking from intake manifold coolant crossover line. Crossover is an aluminum pipe that connects to the plastic intake manifold. When manifold started leaking coolant, 1 & 2 spark plug holes filled with water causing spark plugs to short out and stall the engine at low speed. Per Ford the only repair is replacement of the complete intake manifold at a cost of over $1200. This is a common problem with this engine. I have seen many complaints on F-150 forums via the internet of people having the same problem. My truck has only 105000 miles on it.

2007 F150 purchased new. In the spring of 2010 I started noticing the paint bubble on the leading edge of the hood. Subsequently the paint has started to fall off. There are no prior maintenance activities which would have caused this (e.g. re-paint / accident damage). The remainder of the paint is showroom quality, it appears to be limited to the hood area.

The brake pedal and gas pedal are too close and the brake pedal isn't raised above the gas pedal, they are lateral and too close making for dangerous stopping and accelerating issues.

Urethane adhesive separation / paint separation from windshield frame. Windshield replacement after crack. When the windshield came out the paint came with the urethane adhesive as a solid coating on the adhesive. Windshield was not attached to the auto body frame.

The contact owns a 2007 Ford F-150. While driving 10 mph, the vehicle accelerated to approximately 15 mph without warning when the brake pedal was depressed. The contact felt that the failure was caused by unintentionally depressing the brake and accelerator pedals simultaneously. He also felt that the manufacturer designed the brake pedal too close to the accelerator pedal and that the accelerator pedal was mounted too high. The failure occurred on two other occasions. The dealer stated that the shoes he wore caused the failures. As of November 21, 2007, the dealer had not repaired the vehicle. The failure mileage was 500 and current mileage was 1,700. *updated 12/12/2007 the consumer stated experienced an unintended acceleration for the 4th time. Updated 12/12/07
