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 HAD A BRAND NEW 2001 FOCUS, SPORT EDITION. WITHIN 4 MONTHS OF HAVING THE CAR THE BRAKES HESITATED WHILE EXITING OFF THE HIGHWAY AND JUST SLOWING DOWN SHAKING VERY BAD. TOOK IT TO THE FORD DEALERSHIP 6 TIMES THEY REPLACED THE BRAKING SYSTEM THE 3RD TIME.. AND I'M STILL HAVING PROBLEMS. I'VE CALLED THE MANAGER OF FORD IN CUSTOMER SERVICE. THEY STATED THEIR NOT GOING TO DO A RECALL ON THE BRAKING SYSTEM B/C THERE'S NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE STATING THAT THEY HAVE ONE...
