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.

The main frame is completely rusted in only ten years and truck can no longer be inspected nor it can be repaired. In ten years and only 117, 529 miles the truck has to be junked. Iíve owned many trucks and cars but I do not recall even one that would have frame rusted so badly in only ten years. In short Ford is producing junk and people should be warned when buying used Fords of any kind. The Fords trucks are nothing more but rust buckets.
