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.

The contact owns a 2002 Ford F350. While driving at speeds greater than 40 mph, the vehicle's gear shifts into overdrive on its own. At speeds lower than 40 mph, it shifts violently into fifth gear. Ford diagnosed the cause of failure as the torque converter and a solenoid. Ford also stated that the vehicle is out of warranty, even though it has only 19,080 miles. This has been a persistent failure for more than two months. The purchase date was unknown. The current mileage is 19,080 and failure mileage was 18,000.
