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.

F-350 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

Monday, January 3, 2011, we were driving on a rural road in route to sharps chapel, Tennessee when the right side front passenger caliper/rotor assembly failed causing smoking and burning smell of the brake shoes forcing me to pull to the side of the road. After allowing the brakes to cool, I contacted and drove to morristown Ford in Tennessee and they to attempted to repair the brakes by disassembling and cleaning the caliper/rotor since they did not have the parts available to appropriately rectify the situation. This repair was not effective and the problem has repeated itself four times since then, most recently on October 5, 2012. This appears to be a very dangerous vehicle design and/or part failure!! Ford needs to rectify this problem!!
