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.

problem #3

F-250

  • miles
When brakes are applied, brakes lock and release resulting in failure of vehicle to stop. When brakes are applied quickly, pedal goes to floor and brakes fail. When traveling over a bumpy surface, if brakes are applied, they fail. If driving on extremely wet roads and brakes are applied, they fail to work properly. Brakes pads and/or rotors have been replaced numerous times due to improper wear. Numerous attempts have been made with the dealer and Ford Motor Company to resolve. However, since warranty has expired, Ford Motor Company refuses to discuss vehicle replacement. They acknowledge a braking defect however they claim to have no solution at this time. Copies of all repair orders and service notices from Ford are available, as well as correspondence to the dispute reolution board and Ford Motor Company.
