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.

2003 Ford F-350 Owner Comments

problem #1

F-350 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Ford F350. While parked at a shopping center, the contact's vehicle was burglarized and items were stolen from within the passenger compartment. A police report was filed. She researched and discovered how easy it was for her type of vehicle to be burglarized. She also found several people who experienced the same issue. She took the vehicle to the dealer and showed them the black casing around the handle of the passenger seat. The casing was bent, which is how it was burglarized. The dealer stated that they were aware of the failure, but all that could be done would be to replace the damaged lock with a new one. The current and failure mileages were 80,000.
