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

problem #1

Nov 092004

Focus 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,100 miles


While as a sole driver and occupant of a 2005 Ford Focus, I was stopped at a red light and rear-ended by a four door 1995 Dodge intrepid at a speed of approximatley 50 miles per hour. My driver's seat collasped in the collision which jerked my neck and back into the rear seat. As a result my thorasic spine, cervical sipne was so injreud as to cause my neck and back including my both arms to suffer a degree of paralysis, and injury to the upper spinal cord.
