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.

problem #2

Truck was parked for 2 days since last driven in my driveway 5ft from house. Went to work at night in my other vehicle, came home and started to get my kids ready for school. No visible signs as I passed it on my way into my residents. About an hour later next thing I know a passing off duty fire fighter is banging on my front door, as I go to meet him I see my truck engulfed in flames. Truck is a total loss with fire protruding from hood and fenders reaching into the cab. Fire department finally put flames out after minor damage to other near bye vehicles. Looks as fire started under hood near master cylinder. Truck was repaired by Ford for recall in 06 due to cruise control switch. It appears the same problem persists in new switches or repair was not done properly. Just contacted Ford today about this issue as it just happened Feb,2 2016. In the process of obtaining vehicle service records as I have a friend who works for Ford. Clearly the fire originated from the same area as earlier recalls. 2001 Ford F-350 vehicle speed control NHTSA campaign #06V286000. I have pictures and video of the incident but cannot upload due to file format.

I have a 2001 Ford F-150 that I purchased brand new in 2001. I have noticed that the entire frame is rusted and I am concerned about the structural integrity of the truck. It has already had the gas tank strap recall fixed. I found several spots that look as if the frame is deteriorating from rust.
