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 2012 Ford F-150. The contact stated that there was a burning odor under the hood of the vehicle. The contact looked and found that the cables connected to the battery were burning.

The motor, battery, and battery cables needed to be replaced. The manufacturer stated that the power train was covered under warranty; however, the other repairs were not.
