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.

1999 Ford Ranger Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 012007


  • 16,000 miles


The contact owns a 1999 Ford Ranger. A few years after the vehcile was purchased, the intake manifold failed. The dealer replaced the intake manifold sensor at the cost of $800. The repair did not remedy the failure. The drivers seat was not leveled with the steering column because the seat does not have sufficient padding. As a consequence he could not properly view the road-way, which caused a vehicle crash. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 160,000. The police report and the vehicle identification number was not available. There were no injuries. The current mileage was 220,000.
