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.

I have a 2002 Ford F-350. I have just had to replace my alternator for the second time. I called Ford customer relations and they said there was nothing they would do to help with the costs at this time. It is a part that should last many years and for me to be on my third with a truck this new means to me that there is a problem. The dealer did tell me that they were replacing a lot of them. I have numerous problems with this truck. I kept having high pressure oil line problems until the block cracked and they replaced the motor.
