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.

Truck started leaking water inside both sides of the rear roof corners.

Water leaks through the third brake light lens during hard rain or auto car wash. Enough water comes in to soak the back seat and the floor. Then there is so much moisture inside the cab that the defroster can not clear the windows nor inside the windshield. This is definitely a safety problem as the driver's vision is very effected. Called local Ford dealership and they said there are not a problem - probably just a pinched gasket from changing a light bulb. But that is not the facts. Please check out the many online complaints about this same issue.

I got in the truck this morning and left the house, turned on rear defroster, and about 3 minutes later I heard a loud "pop"! I stopped and looked around but didn't find any since it was still dark out but once the sun came out I saw my rear passenger window, right above my daughter's child seat was shattered. Luckily she was not in there. I have spoke with dealership and they have denied any knowledge of this happening, but a simple search here and on the Ford forums show plenty of consumers having this problem. This should be a recall!

Head liner wet, rear seats and rear carpet wet. Took it to dealer and they did not even try to find problem since it was a water leaking problem it was not covered either by the original warranty or the extended warranty I had purchased. Apparently it is a leak in the third brake light located at the top of the roof. With as many of the 2010 F150's experiencing this same problem, this is obviously a manufacturing defect in either design or installation at Ford, and Ford should be held accountable for repairing the problem. ## VIN failed ##
