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.

Focus ZTS

  • Automatic transmission

The window mechanisms in these cars are HORRIBLE... it cost almost $300 to fix the first time, and when they break, your window won't stay up so you HAVE to fix it

SECOND window mechanism broken! THIS TIME I CAN"T AFFORD to fix it so I have my mechanic put BOTH BACK windows in a locked position so they cannot be used.

Two days after buying the car the controls for the rear windows stopped working. Both rear window controls are unresponsive, as well as the controls for them located on the driver's door. The front windows work fine. I checked the fuse and it's working ok.
