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

problem #1

May 152011

Focus SE 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


So for about 3 summers now my car loses almost all power when the ac is on, it does not want to go even with the gas pedal to the floor. And also the brakes do not want to work right, I have to push hard to get the car to stop. So I have to turn the ac off anytime I want to get moving or stop. I have taken it to multiple places in the last 3 years and no one can figure out what is wrong with it. I just don't know what else to do...this will be my last ford car. Def. I am so done....way too many problems.
