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 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

On two occasions, I have had my truck in park and the keys removed and the truck rolled. It was not fully in park. I was on a slight incline both times, once facing forward and once backed in. I took it to the dealer after the first time and they adjusted the shifter. I now have to take it back in since it did it again.
