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.

2010 Ford F-250 with a horrible shimmy between 60 and 65 mph. Becomes violent shaking after going over small bumbs in road, and unable to steer. To stop this I had to slow below 50 mph. Currently 82000 miles have had this issue for several months. No one at Ford seems to know what it is. Search on the intranet appears to describe it as the "death wobble".

While driving my 2010 Ford F250 Super Duty on the highway I drove over a bump in the road. The truck began to shake violently. It felt like it was going to fall apart while still in motion. I tried to hit the brake but that seemed to exacerbate the problem. I tried to adjust the steering wheel in hopes to align some defunct component. Nothing seemed to help except to let off the gas and attempt to control the vehicle and avoid a potential fatal accident. This really was a frightening event, it was all I could do to maintain a safe distance around me so not to collide with other drivers.

While travelling approximately 65 mph through a curved area of highway, vehicle hit a small bump. Vehicle began to shake violently and uncontrollably in the front end and steering wheel. Once I slowed to approximately 40 mph vehicle stopped shaking. When I pulled over to attempt to identify problem, a woman who had been driving in the lane next to me stopped. She advised me that she saw the incident and said that my front driver's side tire looked like it was about to fall off. I checked suspension and did not notice any obvious problem. I checked lug nuts and all were tight. I was on my way home from a vacation and continued driving approximately 125 more miles without incident. After researching on internet, I am sure that I experienced what is being referred to on the internet as the "death wobble" my truck only has 59,000 miles and is all stock. Tires have relatively good tread and were inflated at proper pressure. I think this could have caused and serious accident and I am fortunate that it did not. It felt very dangerous. I want to report this so that Ford will address this issue.

After hitting a rough spot on interstate 81 my truck started to shake violently. Had to come to a complete stop to stop the shaking. The alignment is now out and the tires need to be replaced after several episodes of death wobble. If Ford and the NHTSA does not correct this problem after knowing it they both should have their pants sued off of them and then thrown under the jail !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope that someone will read this and do their job and not let this go on like Chevy with the cobalt key problem !!!!!!!!

While driving on crowded interstate hwy. Vehicle makes contact with a expansion joint and truck goes into severe wobble and shaking. Had to brake speed in moving traffic to almost a complete stop to cure wobble. Very dangerous and scary. Luckily drivers were courteous enough to let me get it under control without running into my rear and causing a pile up. Have had vehicle in repair shop to inspect with no identifiable solution. Now have a fear of returning back home the 500 miles. Wife is paranoid and fearful. This is the third occurrence in the last year. Manufacturers need to find a fix for this or serious injury could occur.

I just bought this vehicle and was driving the highway at 65 mph. I went over the expansion joint on a bridge and lost control of the vehicle. It jumped into the next lane. Thank god no one was in the other lane and no one got hurt. My family and others could have been killed. The dealership said the steering damper was bad. I'm sorry but a bad steering damper when you are traveling 65 mph over a small bump should not make your vehicle jump into the next lane and loose control. This must be fixed by Ford. I am reading that other people have had to have all of the front end parts replaced and then the problem returns again. What is the NHTSA doing about this? do not have VIN at this time my truck is at the dealers.
