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.

F-250 Lariat V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles

Rust broke out on both sides exact same spot above the rear wheels. Brought to Ford dealer and I was told this is a "known issue" and too bad, your not under warranty anymore. This year I was denied a safety inspection sticker because of the rust location on body. I ordered this truck custom and always garaged it. Seems crazy, less than 10 years I cannot pass a safety inspection due to a "known issue' Ford will not correct.

Passenger side rear quarter had bubbling over wheel. went to dealer, said warranty over ( a few months), called Ford said sorry nothing they could do. called twice more to no avail. had an 89 Bronco that rusted and they fixed it (even out of warranty)!!!! never buy another one !!!! other than the rust its a great truck !! no problems , just very ugly and annoying rust..truck doesnt have a scratch. total shame....rust is now on both quarters over wheels and bottoms of doors....no need for this..Ford should be ashamed of this..Ford tough my ass...................Thanks Ford for nothing i look around and dont see any GMs rusted like this......
