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 vehicle has been brought back to the dealership many many times since it was first purchased (5 times I believe for steering related problems and other times for a brake boot problem and a variety of other issues). The other problem the vehicle has had is what Ford is calling a "shimmy". they originally told us we needed new shocks because of this problem which we disputed and took it to a specialist in shock replacement who told us this was not the problem. Then they told us it was the tires (which they are contending in the form letter they sent us-that states we must maintain proper pressure to control this problem). Unfortunately, proper tire pressure seemingly has nothing to do with this problem and we continue to have the problem to which Ford's answer to us is "get new tires" (the tires have only 22,000 miles on them, they are the tires Ford put on the vehicle when we bought it and they, of course, are not a warranty item). All in all, the truck has had many issues, some of which have been fixed repeatedly only to appear again in the same or similar way.

problem #1

Nov 142006

F-350 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Ford F-350. On November 14, 2007 while driving 35 mph the instrument panel dimmed. The contact was unaware of the vehicle's speed or oil pressure. The dealer stated that the instrument cluster needed to be replaced, and the serpentine belt and pulley failed. The dealer performed the repairs. Two weeks later the radio and cd player failed. The vehicle was taken to the dealer again, and the failures were remedied without an explanation of the cause. The vehicle then began experiencing tire failure. The tires were B.F. goodrich, size LT245/75R17, dot# M343dr211216. While driving 42-48 mph the vehicle began vibrating and produced a humming noise from the tires. The dealer referred to a technical service bulletin, which stated that the vehicle needed a vibration dampler. While driving 70 mph the vehicle would disengage from the cruise control intermittently. On March 27, 2007 the contact brought the vehicle to the dealer, where it remained for two days. The dealer stated that the failure was caused by a cylinder that engaged the four wheel drive and the cylinder relay was replaced. The current mileage was 3,400, and failure mileage was 36.
