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.

Five acquaintences have had their Ford F250 trannys go out.... usually 2nd gear. Apparently Ford manufactures an intermediate sprag that is not heavy duty enough to hold up under normal driving conditions. Aftermarket parts are heavy duty to address the problem. For what the lousy truck cost... Ford should be repairing the trannys as it is a definite defect in workmanship. Their engineers are lousy. FORD: Why not test your junk before offering it to the public. Also, the center seat folds up (for convenience)... but when it's in the down position, everything on the seat falls into the back seat. If that isn't idiotic design, I don't know what is.
