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.

The contact owns a 2001 Ford Focus. The rear windows collapsed in the vehicle. The mechanic stated that the plastic holder failed and caused the cables to intertwine, which then caused the window motor to malfunction. The passenger side rear passenger window was replaced at the cost of $300. The manufacturer advised the contact to take the vehicle to a Ford dealer for a diagnostic, but they could not guarantee that they would be able to assist. The powertrain was unknown. The current mileage was 25,000 and failure mileage was 23,000.
