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.

2002 Ford Ranger Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 222007

Ranger 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,400 miles


Slowing down while coming up to a signal light, as I made the right turn the truck suddenly stalled and the power steering and brakes became hard to handle. The truck however started up right away but had a loss of power for about half a mile to my home. After turning the truck off and starting it up again, the truck ran fine until the other day when it stalled and lost power again. Took the truck to the dealer and they said that they could not duplicate the problem. Reading all the similar complaints about the Ford Ranger has me thinking that something is definitely wrong with the Ford Ranger.
