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 6-cyl

  • 24,000 miles
Purchased this vehicle in 2007 with 8K miles and had some rust on the frame. Now, 2013 I have 24K miles and the frames is completely corroded and my brakes are failing due to the rust. Have already sanded the frame and painted, but the rust comes back. This a big safety concern because parts can break while driving.
