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.

This keep happening to me I have taken my truck in two times and have waited there at Ford for 4-6 hours at a time. So when I am driving along and the road turns left and I hit a small pot hole my entire front left end starts bouncing like a basketball. Ford tells me it's my tires I have gotten them balanced and even new ones on the back. I have to come to very slow speed to make it stop bouncing. This usually takes place on the freeway going 65-75 miles an hour. I have almost been in 3 accidents now. I get scared driving on the freeway now because of it and now take turn much slower. This is not safe and they say nothing is wrong...........

When my truck is driven over a pothole, onto a bridge, or any change in elevation in the driving surface, the vehicle will shake violently. The shaking is so violent the vehicle must be stopped to avoid losing control. It feels as if the front end will literally come apart. This began near the end of November and has continued to get worse and happen more frequently. I have contacted Ford Motor Company and was told there is no recall and to keep records of my repairs if there ever is one. The problem is the track bar and the cost to fix this "death wobble" is approximately 1200 dollars parts and labor. I now have a 50,000 dollar truck that is not safe for my family to ride in. This problem will certainly cause fatalities if it hasn't already. I am a cdl driver and if I can't control the vehicle then I doubt anyone else can either.
