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 #3

  • 60,000 miles


2008 F-150 radio and interior lights randomly come on while the key is off, out of the ignition, parked in the garage, with the doors closed, the windows can be open or closed. Began randomly about 2 months ago (12-1-2010 @ 60K miles). No re-occurring pattern to the incidences. If the radio on/off switch is off the radio does not come on, but the interior light will come on. Local dealer replaced some sort of "radio module-$600" but did not resolve the issue. Help; concerned about battery life and other potential electronic failures.

2008 F150 when you depress the brake and your foot is on the right side of the pedal it will go down pass the acc. Pedal and sometimes causing you to depress both pedals. This has happened to me more than once and can be the cause of an accident if you are in close quarters. If this happens the engine will out pull the effect of the brakes. I took the vehicle to alan vigil Ford in morrow ga and they say that nothing is wrong with it. When this happens I can see why some people run over things even though they say they are on the brake. With todays technology I would think that they could correct this by adjusting the brake when being depressed from going down lower than the accelerator.

Bought a 2008 F-150 and the A/C does not cool properly. Checked it against a 2005 F-150 that I own and new truck A/C is 8 degrees warmer. Took new truck back to dealer, got a loaner 2008 and checked it's A/C. it cools like the 2005. Dealer said nothing wrong with A/C. it has been back to dealer twice now and now is cooling 15 degrees warmer than originally. Dealer will not help. Contacted customer relations in deaborn, mi and they ended up talking to my dealer and said same thing..nothing they can do. I live in Texas and it gets hot here. There is a big difference in cooling something from say 95 degrees to 115 degrees. Something is wrong with A/C and Ford dealership will not acknowledge it or fix it.
