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.

2008 Ford F-150 Owner Comments

problem #1

Ford F-150 has accelerated with foot on brake pedal 4 times, twice while in reverse, twice when stopping, always at low speed. It was hard to stop truck, even with foot full on pedal. The engine was racing with high RPM's. restarting engine resolved issue or putting it in neutral. There is also an issue with A/C ventilation. Temperature varies from cool to hot when dial is set to mostly cool air flow, requiring constant adjusting. Truck has been to dealer 3 times and am told they can't fix it unless they experience it themselves.
