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 #2

  • 80,978 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Ford F-550 superduty. While driving approximately 35 mph the vehicle stalled. It was towed to another location where the driver was able to get it restarted. The vehicle was then taken to an authorized dealer where the driver was informed the fuel tank was de-laminating due to rust and corrosion. It was not repaired. The failure and current mileages were 80,978.

We have a Ford 2004 F550 dump of which the fuel tank is flaking and clogging up the filters and stalling the truck or not even starting. Ford does not want any responsibility for this repair. I know we are not the only ones out there with this problem only want to know how long Ford gets away with this before someone steps up and does something. This repair runs anywhere from $1,800 to $2,000 dollars, I guess this is just another win for the big guys and screwing for us.
