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.

2010 Ford F-150 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 122010


  • 246,000 miles


The contact owns a 2001 Ford F150. The contact stated while accelerating from 40 to 50 mph, there was an abnormal noise and the fuel tank immediately fractured from the vehicle. There was a large gasoline fuel spillage onto the roadway. The vehicle was towed to a local repair facility where the mechanic advised that the straps that held the fuel tank to the vehicle body were corroded and caused the failure. The mechanic replaced the fuel tank, straps, pressure sensor and various clamps needed to hold the new fuel tank in place. The manufacturer advised there was not a recall for the failure and did not provide any assistance. The failure and current mileages were 246,000.
