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.

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.

The contact owns a 2001 Ford F-350. The contact stated that while stopped, he applied the accelerator pedal and the vehicle did not accelerate. The check engine light was illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer and the accelerator pedal assembly was replaced. The failure recurred approximately one year later. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer for repair. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 212,800 and the current mileage was 237,800.

I was woken up by someone knocking on my apartment door to let me know that my truck was on fire. I attempted to put the fire out by filling cooking pans with water and dousing the flames but to no avail. The fire dept along with the police showed up and the front part of the truck is all burned up.

What good is it to respond to a recall of a F150 cruise control when they don't have the parts and you have to make 3-4 trips to get the work done. Then they say they have the part but don't do the work and your back again.....I'm a long time Ford customer but this is ridiculous...then your Agency urges motorists to respond to the recall....how about kicking those Ford execs in their pockets.
