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 think the new fords aren't as good as the old ones!I had a 71 that was damn near perfect. This electronic transmisson crap doesn't impress me. If I hadn't had a decent tranny guy it would've cost me more. Let alone you'd think you could get better mileage with electronics it sucks. I still like my truck but it could be better.
