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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2002 Ford Focus 2.0L SOHC engine has a defect where the intake valve seat fails. The valve then falls into the cylinder, destroying the engine & most owner relationships with Ford in the process.

2002 Ford Focus. Consumer writes in regards to denial of reimbursement the consumer stated in May 2011, the right front spring fractured. The vehicle was towed to a local repair shop where both the left and front spring/strut assemblies were replaced. The consumer learned Ford had issued a technical service bulletin advising dealers that certain Focus vehicles including his were susceptible to front spring fracture failures due to inadequate corrosion protection. The consumer was denied reimbursement, because he did not take his vehicle to a Ford dealer for repairs.
