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.

This is very disappointing to have to experience so soon with a brand new truck. The location of this wiring harness is in an area that unless you have side steps and maybe even then, is not protected. Even then the way the wiring harness comes out from within the wheel wall makes no sense. I'm attaching a few pictures so you can see what occurred. Luckily, someone saw the wire dragging and told me before it was too late. I put up the harness and taped it to hold it up. This could have had a horrible outcome had the wires continued to shred or make contact with one another.

My new Ford F150 has recurring issues with the sync system. We drive down the road, hang up the bluetooth connected phone and the radio will begin playing at full volume and the steering wheel controls stop working, or you will be starting the car up and the air conditioning will be full blast or you will start the car and you wont have any radio/cd player/ media controls working at all. My Ford rep says that Ford does not have a fix and they don't expect one until maybe the first quarter of 2011.

From a dead stop I accelerated to turn into her driveway the engine hesitated and stumbled it sounded like you had thrown a handful of marbles inside the intake the engine made a funny noise then died after getting it restarted the check engine light came on upon returning the vehicle to the dealership I found out it had melted the intake manifold sensors and part of the throttle body away Ford has no idea what caused this the truck is also been plagued with electrical problems. Apparently it came real close to an engine fire the truck is still broke down at the dealership since August 5, 2011.
