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.

Why is Honda motor company putting it's customers in a replacement vehicle while Ford Motor Company is not? my daughter's Honda fit was recalled because of air bags and she is in a replacement vehicle while the air bag is replaced. Ford should be required to do the same thing. I own and drive a 2006 Ford Ranger pick

Takata recall. Driver side airbag. Dealers claim no availability of parts, one says it is not even designed. Ford says they are making parts as fast as they can, will give no estimate of when they will be available. I have called them numerous times. They gave me a case number, which I gave to the dealership. Dealership says that makes no difference. Now I must drive a vehicle which could be hazardous to life.

Takata recall. I have been retained to represent the family of a gentleman who died on December 22, 2015 due to a defective driver side takata airbag in a 2006 Ford Ranger. The accident occurred in lancaster county, SC. Metal from the inflator canister exploded penetrating my clients neck resulting in death. Decedent hit a cow in the middle of the road causing him to run off the road into a field -resulting in airbag deployment. Accident occurred at 3527 rocky river rd. In lancaster county, SC. Client was not ejected from vehicle but remained stationary in driver seat. There is no doubt airbag shrapnel metal killed my client, as this has been confirmed by death certificate and autopsy report. South Carolina highway patrol is still working to complete their mait team investigation. Please contact me directly and I can provide you with more information and other documents.

Ranger

  • 44,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Ford Ranger XLT. While driving between 35-40 mph down a two-lane, dry mountain road, the vehicle began to sway uncontrollably across the road when the brake pedal was depressed. The vehicle failed to slow down and the vehicle veered off the road and traveled 60 feet down the snow covered mountain. The vehicle then rolled over four times. The failure occurred without warning. The air bags failed to deploy. The police and ambulance were called to the scene and a police report was filed. The driver was transported to the hospital and sustained moderate injuries. The vehicle was towed to a collision center. The insurance company has not determined the damages that the vehicle sustained. The failure and current mileages were 44,000.
