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.

2001 Ford F-250 Owner Comments

problem #1

F-250 4WD Diesel

On Monday May 12 I was involved in a car accident. I am concerned because my air bad did not activate. I was driving a 2001 Ford F250, going around 40-45 miles per hour. I ran into the back of a person that was sitting stopped at a red light. I never hit my brakes so I hit her straight in the rear. Why type of impact does it take for the sensor to go off for air bags?
