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.

This is really sad to see. Only seen this happen to Dodge products. I'm a Ford guy always have been but this failure of the paint is not excusable. It really needs to be addressed. Me driving this truck is a embarrassment to Ford quality. Just remember it is the Ford company that looks bad from this. This should be a recall just for the sake of Fords reputation.
