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

My husband and I have 2 Ford F350S that came with general tires of the 12 tires we have had 5 blow outs, the most recent was 4/23/2015 on I-80, in which my truck sustained over $2500 dollars in damage. Just wondering if we are lucky or if general tire company is just trying to kill people. The tires are 235X85X16 load range E and all had substantial tread when they blew. Thank you for looking into this.

The spare tire carrier cable failed and dropped the spare on the ground which bounced and caught the rear bumper. No damage due to the slow speed I was traveling at the time, but this part has since been redesigned and should be recalled before someone gets hurt. New P/N is 6C3Z-1A131-aa.

The contact owns a 2002 Ford F-350 pickup truck. The contact stated that while driving 60 mph the vehicle started to shake violently. The contact mentioned that after maneuvering to the shoulder he noticed that six of the studs on the driver and the rear passenger side aluminum wheel snapped off causing the lug nuts to fall off. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who replaced the studs and lug nuts. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure who did not offer any assistance since the vehicle was not included on any recalls. The failure mileage was 164,000 and the current mileage was 168,000.
