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.

2002 Ford F-350 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 282004

(reported on)

F-350 Superduty

  • 12,000 miles


Since purchased brand new to currently 45000 miles I have had the bench seat back replaced by Ford three times. The problem occured again, but now Ford says I have to pay a portion, 20%, towards another replacement. This is apparently a poor design and I refused. The part in question is the thin metal rods that run vertically in seatback to provide support to the cushion. The rod breaks under normal intended use and pokes through the covering on the back. I currently own three other Ford trucks from 79 to 97 as well as numerous others in the past and have never had this problem
