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 #1

Mar 102006

Ranger 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,593 miles


While starting vehicle my wife was notified by her co-worker that gas was leaking onto the pavement under the driver's side of the vehicle. The vehicle was towed to our dealer where we purchased the vehicle. We were told by the service manager the high pressure fuel line was damaged possibly by road debris, which we had replaced by the dealer. However being the vehicle is a 2001 Ford Ranger pickup truck with 42,523 miles I feel this should be a safety concern due in part that if my wife's co-worker did not see the problem and my wife continued driving the vehicle certainly a fire and possibly serious injury or death could have occurred.
