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.

2003 Ford Ranger Owner Comments

On 2/8/2016 I was driving my 2003 Ford Ranger to work when my drivers side front wheel fell off as I was going around the curve. Very dangerous situation. I could have got seriously hurt or hurt someone else. When I saw my wheel and tire pass me and hit the jersey barrier I hoped it wouldn't hit anyone. Luckily no one was hurt. Something needs to be done about these situations. Why is it that we have to wait until someone dies before anything is done. These wheel studs are defective. It cause a lot of damage to my truck. Lets fix this problem before someone gets killed.

Very unhappy about this does any one care about people lives.
