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. While driving approximately 50 mph, the contact drove over an uneven road surface and the front end of the vehicle began to shake vigorously. The vehicle would also shake abnormally when decelerating. The contact stated that in addition, the check engine warning light was illuminated, the vehicle would erratically shift, and the fuel tank was delaminating. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostics but the technicians were unable to determine the cause of the shaking. The technicians were able to determine that the transmission shift sensor and the fuel tank would have to be replaced. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where the transmission was rebuilt. And the transmission shift sensor was replaced. The fuel tank was not replaced. The VIN was not available. The approximate failure mileage was 80,000.

On 3 separate occasions when brakes were applied the vehicle actually sped-up and was only brought to a stop through heavy pressure to the brake pedal.
