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.

Reverse just went out - no warning. Don't buy a Ford focus. Ford motors won't do anything. The dealer wanted $3000.00 to fix it. A local trans shop was half the price. They don't recommend buying another ford car. This is the worse car to own. I have a chevy with 150000 miles with it's original transmission. Why can't ford admit that this car is no good and stand behind their product. It a piece of crap. If you want to spend a lot on repairs by one. If not please listen to me, I wish I would have listened to the person that told me not to buy a ford focus.
