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.

2000 Ford Focus Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 012010

Focus LX 2.0L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 79,639 miles


This 2000 Focus Wagon is the most recalled car I have every owned. A front coil spring broke and drove an end into the tire. Ford fixed it under warranty only after it broke. Spark plugs quit at 10,000 miles. They were under warranty. I replaced them for a cost of $16.00 and it cured the problem. I called the dealer expecting to get paid or replacement spark plugs under warranty but I was told I should have come into the shop and paid $80.00 so they can figure out it was the spark plugs and then they would replace them.

The transmission went out at 30,000 miles, A constant rear end bump noise let to about 1,000 dollars worth of new rear suspension parts and labor. A rear window fell out of it's track, the rear wiper quit, and there is far too much rust under the body for its mileage.

I am now upset that the brake warning light comes on and off when the brakes work fine and the emergency brake handle is released.
