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.

I have had 3 Ford Focus wagons. All...I repeat...ALL had the same problem. The middle of the sub-frame where the struts are have all rotted through. I made a steel cross support to hold it together it is not safe, The materials they use on the sub-frames is definitely sub standard steel. If I had 3 with the same problem then how many more are there out there.
