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.

2004 Ford Ranger Owner Comments

problem #1

Front suspension causes shims needed in front end alignment to wear prematurely and cause front tires to wear incorrectly on inside of front tires. Needed to get front end alignment. Ford knows about this and does warranty these part for 12,000 miles or 12 months. Spoke with Ford tech and agreed with me that this problem is not noticeable until well after that time frame.
