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.

Truck will not disengage from 4hi and even though it is turned off it will make a terrible grinding sound, which I think has something to do with the transfer case. The light doesn't come on when for 4hi, so I am also thinking there is something wrong with the relay switch.. also our truck vibrates, but has only done it twice, however the truck only has 68 thousands kilometers on it, it is like a brand new truck. We have had it to the Ford dealer and they say nothing is wrong with it. Are they actually waiting for someone to die in one of these trucks. How many complaints does it take?
