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.

I bought my car in March 2016 and noticed right away when I shift from 1st to 2nd my car seems to stall/shake and I have it in automatic, when I have in the kind of shift that I do it doesn┐T do it. I have contacted the dealership about it and they always tell me there is nothing they can do about it. I have read where others are having the same problem. A friend of mine bought at 2015 Ford Focus and hers is doing it as well.

The wrench light would come on while driving the vehicle. It would happen in both city and interstate driving. The vehicle would go into limp mode and I would just barely be able to get on to the shoulder of the highway. Definitely a safety issue in 70 mph traffic. Stopping and restarting the engine would allow normal operation for about 5 miles. The problem would then occur again. The dealer diagnosed a bad throttle body with a code of P2011. I've read that Ford has a history of these problems with throttle bodies. It seems they have not fixed the issue on newer models.

Shortly after having the car, the transmission started being jumpy, losing power at take off and acting like it will stall out. I have made several attempts for Ford dealership to look at. Did suceed with one of the attempts and they said they reset computer. That did not work. The other times they tell me that they cannot fix and they are working on finding a solution to fix. I have tried to trade in and they tell me now it is only worth about half of what we bought a year ago. My family feels very unsafe in this car and very dissatisfied with asheville Ford.
