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 vehicle stalls at random intervals. This problem has been brought to Ford attention. The vehicle has been the shop many times and Ford has duplicated the malfunction. However they have not been able to isolate the problem or come up with any fix. The truck has been in the shop for over 4 month during the last year.
