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.

2013 Ford Fiesta Owner Comments

While my 17 year old daughter was driving her 2013 Ford Fiesta the power steering malfunctioned. This happened once before while she was in a parked position, this time however it was while she was driving. After the engine is shut off and restarted the problem is resolved. This is definitely a concern because you have no warning when it will happen. We bought this car 8 months ago for our daughter, she has been a licensed driver since December 2015. The car had 1 previous owner, no accidents, low mileage. Had recall issue for door latches taken care of as well as reprogramming the tcm 3 days before steering went out.

The vehicle shuttered, make grinding sound and hesitated when starting up and driving. At every stop light, stop sign when starting up again, the same sounds, and hesitating would occur. Took vehicle in to the dealer who said I needed another clutch and transmission. About $3000. I have another vehicle same year, same model, and exactly the same situation is happening, these vehicles should be recalled immediately.
