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.

The contact owns a 2008 Ford F-150. Since the vehicle was purchased, it has experienced multiple failures. While driving 40 mph, the charger indicator illuminated, which meant that the turbo charger was failing. When the indicator was illuminated, the vehicle would slow down and prevent the vehicle from accelerating. The vehicle was taken to the dealer on several occasions, but they found no failures with the turbo charger. After the vehicle was taken to the dealer, the failure recurred and white smoke appeared from the tail pipe again. The vehicle completely failed and would not accelerate. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and they stated that a sensor failed. The sensor was replaced. Four months later, the contact noticed water leaking underneath the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and they stated that the radiator failed. The radiator was replaced. A week later, while driving approximately 70 mph, the turbo charger tubing failed and caused the vehicle to stall. The vehicle was towed to the dealer and they stated that the turbo tubing failed. The dealer repaired the issue. Recently, while driving approximately 65 mph, white smoke appeared again from the tail pipe and the vehicle decelerated. Diesel fuel was discovered leaking from underneath the vehicle. The vehicle was towed to the dealer and the contact is waiting to be inspected by Ford engineers. The dealer stated that they were unsure of what repairs were needed at this time. The manufacturer was notified and the owner is attempting to have the vehicle replaced. The failure mileage was 3,000 and current mileage was 40,000.
