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.

I love the truck it just has a few problems. One is the brakes will lock up every time its wet, humid, or snows. I start my day with my brakes locking, sliding down my steep driveway. It's annoying and its unsafe. 'Ive had my brakes checked 3 times by my auto mechanic and he said he can do nothing. He also told me that I'm not the only one with that problem. He had 3 other Rangers in the past month that were having the same problem as me. Not just that, the ABS goes on for no reason. Almost slid into a car in front of me on a slushy road. Thankfully before the ABS came on I was going slow in the first place and gave a lot of distance between us. I slowly pressed down on the brake. and right after I pressed it I lost full control of the braking. Slid and only had about 1ft and 1/2 in front of me. Almost had a heart attack and almost sh*t my pants. Now the truck IS 20 years old so the abs may need to be changed, so I won't blame the truck for that but still... DISABLE your abs.
