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.

2016 Ford F-150 Owner Comments

problem #3

  • 15,000 miles


Driving at legal limit speeds, when hitting imperfections in the roads, front end/suspension hops violently (almost feeling like it's taking the wheel away from you) leading to difficulty in reacting and correcting safely in order to right vehicle in lane. This has happened repeatedly in a multitude of driving situations. Going straight, turning, driving straight down the highway at 75mph and down to 45mph. Never had this problem with any vehicle I've owned before, including Ford's equipped almost identically.

F-150 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55 miles
The contact owns a 2015 Ford F-150. While driving approximately 40-60 mph, the floor of the vehicle and the steering wheel vibrated. The failure occurred while the vehicle was in motion and idling. The failure began the day after the vehicle was newly purchased. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the drive shaft was vibrating. The dealer informed the contact that the vehicle's suspension needed to be broken in at a minimum of 500 to 1,000 miles. The vehicle was not diagnosed with a failure nor repaired. The manufacturer stated that the vehicle was not experiencing any failures. The approximate failure mileage was 55. Updated 07/12/16 the consumer stated Ford was buying the vehicle back, because they were unable to fix the problem, despite replacing several components. Updated 07/19/16.

problem #1

Seat headrest protrudes too much out of the seat and it pushes forward head of some drivers. The only adjustments available (slide up and down, tilt top forward) do nothing to alleviate the issue. The lack of ability to "scoot" the entire headrest backwards causes back and neck pain while driving for as little as 10 minutes. One solution people are resorting to is to re-insert the headrest backwards, but the tilting mechanism prevent the head from being stopped and sent backwards in the event of an accident. Another solution is to recline the seat back so much that your back is no longer supported. Again a safety issue. When hitting small imperfection on the road, even in dry weather, the vehicle feels as if it's about to fishtail. Some people have mention the suspension is too slow to compensate for bumps and thus the tire, for a small amount of time, does lose contact with the road. All of this complaints can be found in the F-105 forums:
