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.

2001 Ford Focus Owner Comments

I drive a 2001 Ford Focus, purchased from a previous owner. I looked through all the records provided by the previous owner and no problems happened whatsoever. Just recently I was about to start my car and the ignition would not budge. I know this is a problem that was recalled with GM and vehicles of similar year and style. My sister had her 2003 Pontiac Grand Am ignition tumbler stop working too. It had to be towed and fixed. Low and behold a recall came out after we had my sisters car fixed and GM refused to reimburse us. I am hoping Ford might be better but from what I've read online it sounds like Ford is as shady as GM. I am going to get it fixed tomorrow, so hopefully I will have a happy outcome with my car. Please comment if you have had similar experiences or problems and how you dealt with it.
