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 8-cyl Diesel

  • 18,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Driving approximately 45 mph on a state highway, making a slight left turn, hit a small bump in the road, and the steering wheel started jerking violently from left to right from the 9:00 to 3:00 positions. I could not stop it with both hands. I had to brake the vehicle to almost a complete stop to end the jerking. This has been happening on almost a daily basis. The vehicle currently has 22,193 miles on it. It has been to the dealership at least 4 times and they have been called numerous times with the problem. They have checked the tire pressure several times. The front end. Changed the steering damper, which slightly helped for about 500 miles. It is now happening every time I drive the vehicle and is getting worse. Now also happening at lower speeds, around 30 mph and up.

2011 Ford 250 diesel has been in for front end service(front end alignments) and excessive scalloping of tires four times. Two dealerships have expressed concern over the severity of the tires. The truck continues to pull to the right and the front end has started to shake/wobble after hitting a bump.

At high speeds over 50 mph, if truck hits a bump, front end shakes violently until you come to a complete stop. Dealer has no answer. On internet many others having same problem. Called "death rattle".

F-250

  • 35,200 miles
Violent front end wobble - death wobble - while traveling 75 mph, on interstate hwy, with moderate rough road, severe front-end shake from two front tires wobbling. Must slow, quickly, to less than 30 mph to stop wobble. Have had a total of three similar events over a period of four months. Searched google and youtube for F250 death wobble. Results are many people with same problem. No fix or answer to problem. Very unsafe condition. Needs NHTSA to get involved and review.

F-250 8-cyl Diesel

  • 50,000 miles
This vehicle has severe front end wobble which mostly occurs between the speeds of 60 - 70 mph. The steering wheel and entire vehicle begins to violently wobble so much that usually the vehicle has to be stopped on the side of the road to stop the wobble. The dealership suggested new tires which we replaced however the problem still exists. The is a common problem we have learned online with this model truck. We are very concerned that this problem may cause an accident.
