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.

2008 Ford F-250 Owner Comments

problem #2

May 292015


  • 123,000 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Ford F-250. While driving approximately 60 mph, the steering wheel shook violently and wobbled out of control. The contact had to depress the brake pedal harshly in order for the failure to seize. The contact stated that the wobbling of the front end caused the radiator to eventually burst. The failure recurred multiple times. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who replaced the tires and performed an all wheel alignment; however, the failure persisted. The manufacturer informed the contact that the VIN was not included in any recalls. The approximate failure mileage was 123,000.
