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.

Defective spark plugs in 2007 Ford F150 5.4 L 3valve V8. I was informed by my mechanic at Ford that there is a strong possibility that one or all of my spark plugs might break during removal, and that it will cost an additional $90 to extract each broken plug. In fact there is a tsb bulletin with procedures to address this issue. Tsb 08-1-9. I can not believe that in the modern age we have such a defective situation. And no remedy. Ford has stated that they will not address this problem until there are sufficient complaints and instructed by your Agency. Leaving those owners of the 5.4L engine to foot the repair bill on an otherwise simple process for other vehicles. In additionthe Ford manual states the spark plugs are good for 100,000 mi. But the service department highly recommends replacing the spark plugs at 60,000 mi to prevent seized spark plugs. Quite a contradiction. If this is poor engineering on Ford part, the consumer should not have to bear the burden.

Driving along, heard a bang, smelled very strong smell of fuel, truck started backfiring and vibrating so much it was hard to control, forward motion slowed rapidly, vibration, attempted to pull the truck over across 4 lane of traffic, opened windows as the smell of fuel was choking everyone in the cab. Stopped truck, engine running very rough and had strange noise, unable to locate. Eventually found right rear most spark plug blew out of head (leaving metal threaded part and base in head), contacted dealer "big Ford, vancouver, wa" and "courtesy Ford, portland, Oregon" both claim the "flex fuel engines have a common problem with the spark plugs separating, sticking in the head, and/or exploding out of the head" the also stated the Ford was aware of the problem but no recall was taking place as there were not enough complaints as of yet (the truck engine is damaged, still smells like fuel inside the cab, plugs, coil, and injector have been changed, dealer would not honer "bumper to bumper warranty" this issue will eventually cause a great number of deaths and or injuries and the fuel issue could likely cause an explosion (even in my vehicle after the repairs)(dealers wanted between $2,000 and $6,000 to extract the spark plug bases and stated repeatedly it was a common issue and it was "not covered under warrently"

Battery dead after less than 2 years. Dealer will not replace. Dealer claims non-eom stereo drains battery in only minutes. Stereo unhooked.. problem persists. The truck took a couple of retries to get it from start to finish of a tx state inspection because the battery dies, even after charging overnight. Last time. It got through inspection, but needed a jump start after inspection. I contacted Ford customer service. The csr informed me that they are going to believe their dealer over a customer. No help.
