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.

2006 Ford Ranger Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 112006

Ranger 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Ford Ranger. The contact stated that the cap on the steering wheel has a gap that circles all the way around. When the steering wheel is turned, his clothing gets caught in the gap. This failure occurs intermittently. The dealer and manufacturer stated that this is the design of the vehicle and nothing can be done. The current mileage is 4,000 and failure mileage was 1,000. The consumer stated the defect occurs when wearing clothing with sleeves, cuffs, buttons, etc. Which in turn catches under airbag/horn cap when turning the vehicle. Updated 02/01/08
