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.

Upon parking the vehicle and opening the door using the outside handle, the door latch on the front passenger door failed. The door would no longer remain closed. I needed to hold the door closed while driving to a dealership for repair, as it wanted to swing open (especially during left turns).

Moisture can enter the HVAC system and freeze during cold temp causing the blower motor to freeze, leaving it inoperable. The vehicle was parked overnight on a cold night. Windows will not defrost during cold temps resulting in a safety issue.

On 10/26/16, we (4 of us) finished shopping and got back into my parked car my daughter exclaimed that the rear door behind the driver seat would not close. We tried numerous times to shut it, even peered into the latch area, but didn't see anything like the other doors. It was around 5:30 P.M. we had nothing to secure the door, so we moved my grandson's car seat to the middle and I sat in the back seat and held the door while my daughter drove us home slowly. The next morning I used a rope to hold the door while I drove to the Ford dealership and they fixed the latch for $344.40. I used my car payment to pay for the repairs and I was told my vehicle was not listed on the recall list. If this happens to all my other doors, it will add up $1377.76. I have a copy of the repair receipt. I can scan for you if needed.

Front passenger door flew open while making a left turn at approximately 25 miles per hour. All doors were locked at the time. The door will no longer close properly. The incident nearly led to an accident and driver had to pull over to the side of the road to try and close the door. Apparently the current recall doesn't cover our specific 2014 Ford Fiesta even though many 2014 Fiestas are covered by the recall.

Door latches for passenger front, and both back doors have failed. They have came open while driving, I had to tie the back passenger and front passenger together with the seat belt. The latches are made of plastic and are completely broken. I had young children riding in this vehicle at the time. I took to Ford on 7/22/2016, and they wanted 800+ to fix the latches even though there is an open recall on them. They also let me drive my vehicle away in this condition, knowing it is unsafe. I only have 38,264 miles on this vehicle.

Rear driver's side door swung open when I was mid-left turn on a city street. I immediately pulled over and attempted to close door. Latch does not seem to be working, door would not close/stay closed. Door had to be tied and bungee-corded shut inside the car (through backseat). Warning alert continues going off, letting me know rear door is still open.

While driving the vehicle on an on-ramp (gradual right hand turn @ approx. 45 mph) the drivers door latch failed and the door opened. The VIN was not included in the recent recall of this same problem. Ford dealership wanted to charge over $600 to repair. They "secured funds" from some Ford safety program and we were only charged $50. Less than 2 months later the rear passenger door has done the same thing and I'm being told it still isn't a recall item...

Back passanger door opened while driving and will not latch closed. Called Ford and even though there is a recall on this matter with my make model and year, my car is not included and they want over $500 to fix. On top of this my car tries to stall everytime I go to excelerate from a stop and also when it goes from 1st to 2nd gears. I was told when purchased that it was me not hitting the gas hard enough, however I do not find this is the case
