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 #6

F-250 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Broken front torsion bar. Started motor, shifted from park to reverse, and without moving from the spot, heard a loud crack and the torsion bar had snapped. My garage was told by their parts supplier that, until this past month, they never had a request for this part before. This is now the second request in the past month. Kept the broken bar after replacement.

  • Automatic transmission

Torsion bar keeps braking first on driver's side at 35000 which could cause front end to drop, then on passenger's side. Torsion bar broke twice in the same year. Front end dropping at high speed could cause the vehicle to rollover.

Breakage occurred either while stationary or doing slow speed - not sure when. Vehicle was leaning to right when I returned to it 20 minutes after driving it. Feel free to call for more information. I see on the web that these torsion bars have been breaking quite frequently on F150S too!

problem #1

F-250 4WD

  • miles
Both front torsion bars broke while vehicle was setting in the garage. It appears to be related to cold weather stress or the torsions bars were heat treated to hard. Did not flex between the cold weather (0 -10 deg) and the warm garage (45 deg
