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.

problem #1

Focus SE 2.0

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,000 miles


It happened on my way back from Miami to Tampa, had picked-up my mom, & had my daughter in the car, well a 3 hrs. ride turn out to be a 6 hrs. rides, because this darn thing keeps on shutting down anywhere & anytime, stop, take a 5 min. brake and go for another 15 to 30 miles before it will quit again. Thank god when i got home, I got the recall letter, I'll tell you, this car is the worst vehicle I've had, I don't know how can Ford stand to all of this. I'm not happy & be better once I trade this for a import, at least they spend the time & money to develop good engineering & reliable vehicles....
