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.

problem #1

F-450 Lariat 6.0L Dsl V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,108 miles

Ford, has engineered a defective gas tank that delaminates and contaminates the diesel fuel which has the potential to cause catastrophic problems with the injectors and engine. Fortunately I caught the problem during routine fuel water separator filter maintenance and quit driving the vehicle.

Ford denies any responsibility and refuses to pay for a replacement tank.
