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.

The clutch cylinder failed and engaged the clutch. This made the vehicle take off, sometimes sending the consumer into the intersection of traffic. The cylinder has been replaced twice and it continues to perform the same way.

While driving uphill at 15-20 mph the driver heard a sound coming from the transmission. The transmission shifted to neutral, then the vehicle rolled backward. After stopping, the driver was unable to shift to drive or reverse. The vehicle was towed to the dealer where a clutch mechanism inside the automatic transmission was replaced.

F-250 4WD

  • Manual transmission

Clutch hose line that runs from the master cylinder down to the slave cylinder melted across the exhaust manifold thereby releasing all the hydraulic fluid, upon shifting out of overdrive due to the trailer and the grade on the freeway, the clutch pedal stayed on the floorboard of vehicle resulting in vehicle effectively being stuck in neutral.
