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 8-cyl Diesel

  • 500 miles
Having owned the truck less than a month and driving in city traffic, the vehicle lost power and went to idle. This happens repeatedly. Seems to occur primarily in city driving - not highway driving. Have been to the dealership several times with no solution. They can find no codes. This is dangerous as I could be making a left turn in heavy traffic when it drops to idle and could be involved in a serious accident. We have now owned this truck for a year and it only has 6,800 miles on it due to the danger of driving in traffic. Most of these miles have been from repeated trips to the dealership to no avail.

problem #1

  • 600 miles
The contact rented a 2011 Ford F350. The contact was driving in reverse approximately 5 mph when shifting into drive, there was a sudden acceleration. The vehicle failed to slow down. The brake was applied with excessive pressure and the tires began to spin uncontrollably. The brake pedal was engaged firmly numerous times. The contact shifted the gear into park and turned the engine off in order to stop the vehicle. When the rental vehicle was returned to the facility, the contact informed them of the unintended acceleration failure. The failure mileage was less than 600. The VIN was unavailable.
