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.

2003 Ford F-250 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 062011

F-250 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Ford F-250. The contact stated the seam that holds the roof in place fractured from the front of the vehicle to the rear. The vehicle was inspected by a dealer who advised him that they were aware of the failure and that he would need to have the seal grind out and replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified and offered no assistance. The failure mileage was approximately 90,000. In 2 hours I located 12 additional Ford vehicles at dealerships with the same problem. 2006 and older vehicles including my own 2005 freestar. I believe if involved in an accident the roof will dislodge causing the occupants to be ejected. The manufacture was contacted they are aware and refused to assist. Updsted 10/18/2011
