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 #1

Dec 272008

F-250 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • 40,000 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Ford F-250. While driving 10 mph on icy road conditions, the contact noticed that his four wheel drive would not engage on two different occasions. The risk of a crash was increased. The dealer stated that the vacuum hose for the four wheel drive was manufactured too short. Therefore, when making sharp turns, the component would easily fail. The hose has been replaced twice at the cost of $56 per hose. The failure mileage was 40,000 and current mileage was 44,000. Updated 3/24/09 updated 03/27/09.
