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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: Welcome to North America, Ford Fiesta. Thanks for bringing your herky-jerky transmission, numerous interior quality complaints, and an engine that dies while driving.

In August of 2013 both front and rear door latches on the passenger side stopped latching within one day of each other. Our car was kept at the dealership for several weeks and we were charged half of the repair costs after writing letters to Ford that this was obviously a manufacturing defect. They would not accept responsibility or pay for the full cost of repairs. On Jan 19, 2014, the rear passenger door latch which had been replaced again failed to latch and is currently held closed with a bungee cord. We have not taken the car back to the dealership yet.

My husband went to place my son's toddler seat in the back seat when he did he later tried to close the door and the door would not latch. We tried closing it several times and not successful. This happened to the right rear door. My husband then took the car to a Ford dealership and said that it would cost roughly $500 to diagnose and fix the problem. We didn't leave it because this should be something that Ford should take care of since to me it seems to be a car defect and not anything we did to it. So we saw that we are not the only ones with this problem and want to unite with other owners to get this resolved with a recall.

Coming to stop you start to speed up why you are pressing on brakes, do to the fact that the brake pedal and gas pedal are to close to each other.
