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

Jul 262007

(reported on)

Focus Ghia 1.6L

  • Manual transmission
  • 23,000 miles

It is really annoying and possibly dangerous as on the motorway,the electric windows on the car keep opening spontaneously.. all the windows went down at once leading to things flying about the car. I went to Ford around 3 times and they kept saying it was alright. I went to another repair shop and they found the problem straight away.
