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.

F-150 8-cyl

  • 50,000 miles


Driveline has been vibrating at 55 mph for months. Ford service told me it was the tires, so I put a new set of tires on my 2007 F150 king ranch supercrew. Still not the problem. Had it checked out by the tire shop and they said it was the driveline needed rebalancing. The truck is only 4 years old and should not be doing this. Problem started about 50000 miles - out of warranty of course. A recall should be instated for Ford to correct the issue.

2007 Ford F-150 4X4 had the 4X4 shift on the fly activate on hard pavement while merging onto highway while on the on ramp, car lurched forward and very loud bang almost like a gunshot happened at 50 miles an hour. Caused the truck to swerve to the right onto shoulder narrowly missing the abutment. The cause is faulty vacuum actuators and shift motor. This happened repeatedly and was especially pronounced in right turns causing for imprecise turning and handling of the vehicle.

My company purchased three Ford F-150 4X4 super crew trucks at the same time and one of them had the left front hub bearings fail and the left wheel assembly came loose and was caught just before a total failure. The second truck (the one I drive) now has a clicking noise in the left front hub and carthage Ford in Missouri has acknowledged it but does not know how to fix it after three trips to the dealership. I am concerned for my safety and I am also concerned that there is a major problem that Ford will not acknowledge it or communicate it to the dealerships in fear of financial ramifications of a recall. Both of these trucks are driven on interstate highways and have around 100 miles per day placed on them so I think we are ahead of massive failures when these 2007 models get over 50,000 miles on them.
