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.

Vehicle would repeat law battery message. Took to dealer battery tests good. Vehicle would sometimes die overnight with a no start condition in mourning. 6 dealer visits and one new battery, "no problem found" from dealer. This vehicle could strand you at any time. I have a open case from Ford but problem continues.

2013 Ford F150 ecoboost supercrew (157" wb) when loaded exhibits pulse/bucking/shaking when taking off from a stop. Noticeably worse as more load is applied. Vehicle is rate with payload of 1500 lbs and it only takes 200-300 lbs in the bed to feel it and when you have 700-800 lbs it literally bucks. Had at dealer multiple times and been in contact with Ford tech line who all say that no damage or safety issue exists and to live with it. I paid $42K for this vehicle and now I can't even put anything into the bed to to unsafe starts that are going to leave me stranded. To make matters worse the computer tries to compensate for the vibrations and starts to lower power causing it to not go which is dangerous in left hand turn situations. The tech said there was nothing they could do as Ford states these are known issues.
