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 #1

Sep 142001

F-350 Diesel

  • miles
Engine began failing at 1200 miles and has gotten progressively worse. When the engine fails all power options are lost as well and has caused several close calls. Failure occurs without warning placing my life in danger. The Ford regional representative has refused to talk with me until they try to repair the truck again. I can't trust this truck and feel it should not be on the highway. The dealer has the truck for the third time and hope they will replace it rather than use me as their crash dummy.
