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 #2

Jul 042011

F-350 8-cyl Diesel

  • 30,000 miles


Occurring since vehicle purchased new on July 9, 2005 with six year extended warranty. The failure is that the parking brake does not work properly despite repeated attempts by two dealers to as they say "adjust" it. The brake works and actuates 1-2 times out of 10 and does not work in reverse ever. Dealer told me it is not designed to work in reverse at all and will not hold in reverse. The dealers see no defect and have never replaced any parts. The brake lining is in excellent condition. Due to this situation I suspect it is simply a manufacturer defect or design flaw with serious safety implications if the transmission park pin failed.

problem #1

  • 59,000 miles
The contact owns a 2005 Ford F-350. While driving approximately 35 mph, the rear driver side tire suddenly locked which caused the vehicles rear end to slide; however, the contact was able to control the vehicle and avoid a crash. The dealer stated that the parking brake assembly needed to be replaced. The contact previously noticed that the parking brake intermittently failed to function properly. The current and failure mileages were 59,000.
