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.

2001 Ford F-150. A weld in my drivers seat snapped and a cable has come through the seat. I called my local dealer and they said it was considered " trim " and not covered by my warranty. I called Ford directly and was told that they stand by my dealers decision. I don't understand how this can be considered trim and since I can no longer sit all the way in my seat I don't know how this can be considered safe. When I asked what I should do until my arbitration papers come, I was told to either not drive my truck or be very careful. ( no kidding )

The consumer's states that the seat(s) padding, cause discomfort. He states that body parts, especially those that help operate the vehicle will go knumb, and it's hard to engage the brakes. The consumer states that he mentionedthis to the dealer when he first purchasedthe vehicle, and was told that the seats have to be broken in. Scc
