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.

2004 Ford Focus Owner Comments

I didn't test drive the ford focus (2005, not 2004, they only had a 2004 option when making this complaint. I tried the a/c the next day after I bought it and the fan makes this clicking or water dropping type of noise. I took it back and said I wanted my trade in back. The dealership refused because I drove the car off the lot. Everyone hears the noise, the shop foreman, the salesperson, and his peer. We test drove another 2005 Focus to see if it had the same noise. IT DID! They where going to offer to just trade my for a different Focus. But whats the point? I feel ripped off. I WILL NEVER buy a FORD again.
