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.

problem #2

Sep 082008

Focus SE 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 124,000 miles


The problem started right after we changed the brakes on our car. The pedal wants to go all the way to the floor. We have had two different people bleed our brakes and it hasn't helped at all. My neighbor said we may need to replace a caliper, a pressure something, or worst of all buy a new master cylinder, which by the way, is not cheap. We have had the problem for quite a while now, kinda scared to find out what's actually wrong. The brakes were fine right up til the point when we replaced the pads, so I dont know but it totally sucks!!!

since i owned the car the brake pedal go about half way to the floor before it works. just put front calipers, rotors and rubber brake lines on the car. still have the problem. the brakes work fine when the pedal is half way down. garage who fix it said it might be the master cylinder but it wii cost alot.
