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.

2001 Ford Ranger Owner Comments

problem #3

Dec 172008

Ranger LX V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles


For my 2001 Ford Ranger, the pin that holds the position of the driver side seat broke. I know have to put a cooler behind the seat to keep it from falling all the way back. So I cannot reposition the seat unless I get a bigger device to sit behind my seat.

(reported on)

Ranger XLT 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 58,000 miles

I am only a 170lb driver, yet my seat back fell out from behind me while driving. I investigated it and found a bolt had sheered itself int 3 pieces trapping part of the bolt in the seat. I am going to the dealer today to see about repair. My truck is not really drivable until this is fixed.
