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 4WD 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission

The contact owns a 2009 Ford Ranger. The contact stated that while driving 5 mph and attempting to shift gears, the clutch engaged prematurely, which prevented it from shifting. As a result, the vehicle stalled. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who was unable to diagnosed the failure but decided to replace the clutch as a temporary fix. The remedy failed to repair the problem. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure who stated that they would contact him at a later date. The vehicle was not further repaired. The failure mileage was 25,000 and current mileage was 37,000. Updated 11/07/11 updated 06/14/2012
