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.

wow flashing air bag lights . so whats next Ford ? Are they going to deploy and blow me threw the back window or what .Cant wait to see what is going to happen next . Maybe Ford should get out of the car building corp and just make window glass . IS THIS GOING TO BE WORTHY OF A RECALL OR DO WE JUST DIE IN A CRASH AND LET SOME LAWYER MAKE A BUNDLE OFF YOU FOR OUR LIVES

I have no real complaints about my truck. I love it besides it having a very small bed. The air bag light came on and it can get annoying sometimes but I just ignore it. I would like to know why it is on but dont have the money to figure it out.
