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.

2012 Ford F-150. Consumer writes in regards to issues with the vehicle spare tire. The consumer stated it wasn't until he had a flat tire, that he was introduced to the term full-size dis-similar spare and the restrictions Ford stipulated. Driving speed, towing a trailer, or even washing the vehicle with the spare on it in a commercial wash, would violate the warranty, he paid for. The consumer was informed by the tire technician, the radius of the original tires were 39,9 inches and the radius of the dis-similar spare was 39.1 inches. Further, that prolonged use of the spare could and most probably would affect the mechanical operation of the transfer case.
