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.

Ranger XLT Supercab

  • 21,635 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Passenger seat had been moved completely forward to access supercab suicide door and rear compartment. Returned seat on slide rails to rearward locked position, then lifted seat recline lever to return seat back to a position allowing easy entry. Lever broke off in hand. Lever was not forced at all and no person was in seat, nor was any rearward pressure exerted on seat back other than to keep it from popping forward. Plastic handle is cheaply built without adequate reinforcement.
