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.

Focus SE

I love listening to my cds and now my cd player skips even with new cds. it started out only when I hit pot holes but now it does it all the time. I tried cleaning the cd player. it helped a little but not enough to where I can even listen to 1 song without interruption.

The cd player tends to skip even perfectly good cds. I even put in a brand new cd and it skipped it all over the place. It tends to happen after a speed bump or pot hole. But it is a real pain to deal with. Focus is not a good car, and I would definitely discourage people from buying any type of FORD product
