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.

Excessive front end shimmy on occasion with my Ford F350 4X4. I have received a letter from Ford discussing this issue. The first time the problem occurred, my tire pressure was low and subsequently maintaining proper tire pressure seemed to prevent the problem for a while. However, recently I hit some bumps while traveling on the highway at a speed of approximately 65 mph and the front end began to shimmy very violently. I knew to hit the brakes to regain control of the steering, but I had to stay on my brakes until I slowed to approximately 40 mph before I could regain control of the steering wheel. I called a local Ford service center, but they said they would "only be guessing" at the proper way to fix the problem. I then called Ford customer service to discuss the issue, as I am nervous about riding on the highway with the vehicle. They suggested that I call several service centers until I find one that has experience with trying to fix this particular problem. I have done that and I have made an appointment for service tomorrow. The reason for my writing this complaint is that the last occurring was so severe, that I was afraid of causing an accident due to the quick deceleration I was forced into in order to regain steering control of the vehicle.

When traveling down the freeway a bridge deck or pot hole will cause my 06 F-350 to shimmy uncontrollably. This has happened about a dozen times. I have to come to a complete stop to get the truck to stop shaking. Ford says there isn't anything wrong with the truck.

The front end of my 2006 F-350 will shake when going over a bump at speeds of +65 mph. It is almost uncontrollable. I have taken it to Ford and they say there isn't anything wrong, this has happened 6 times. I have checked numerous web-sites and there are at least 500 other complaints on this subject. It is a danger to me and all the other motorists around me.
