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 #2

Mar 112004

F-250 10-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


The brake pedal and the gas pedal are too close, and gas pedal is 1/2 inch lower. When stepping on the brake pedal consumer can hit the gas pedal at the same time. Dealer states no modification because of design specifications. This problem would become worse in the winter when the consumer wears boots.

problem #1

Oct 252002

(reported on)

F-250 4WD Diesel

  • miles
Consumer was pulling out of an intersection onto a four lane highway. The consumer floor the accelerator pedal in order to get up to speed with oncoming traffic when the vehicle suddenly idled down. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who determined that the throttle stopping device on the pedal assembly bent when the pedal was floor and caused the truck to idle down instead of up. The steering wheel did not respond when the consumer slammed on the brake.
