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.

I think this should become a recall issue because of the the bad design of the air intake system.

With the recent tropical storm Faye, the amount of rain here in Florida was enormous. As a consequence water with the help of strong wind, found a way inside the engine. The car was parked in my driveway and was NEVER at any time in standing water. Yet there is water inside the pistons????? When i tried to start it a day after the storm, it would not start and ultimately it seized. I would like to know if anyone has had a similar problem with the focus.
