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 2006 Ford F-350. The contact stated that while driving 30 mph, the front passenger wheel seized. The failure occurred because the caliper seized. The contact also stated that the wheel was extremely hot after the failure occurred. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer and the caliper was repaired. The failure had since recurred on an intermittent basis. The vehicle was either taken back to the dealer for repair or the contact performed the repairs himself. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 7,000.

  • 16,000 miles
The Ford F-350 truck I bought is defective, as evidenced by the 7 power steering and brake repairs required in the past 3 years, along with the electrical system and ring and pinion repair. I have contacted Ford 24 times, I have filed a complaint with the mn better business bureau and the mn attorney general's office. I believe the truck was manufactured in a faulty manner, and I am afraid the truck may be dangerous to drive. I need your help in obtaining credit towards a new truck or a new truck due to the unacceptable number and type of repairs required.

The contact owns a 2006 Ford F350. The contact stated that the brakes will lock and cause the calipers to burn. A small fire occurred during one of the failures. The brakes and calipers have been replaced four times, most recently on April 22, 2007. The dealer stated that the cause of the frequent failures could be due to several reasons; however, they were unable to diagnose the exact cause of the failures.
