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 #2

Focus 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


: the contact stated while driving during winter conditions in the North East, the salt, sand and snow accumulate on the inside of the wheels causing the vehicle to vibrate violently. The dealership determined the wheels were so flat on the inside they were unable to shed these elements. The contact is unable to remove these elements at the car wash. The wheels have to be taken off and cleaned before the vehicle is safe to drive. Updated 03/28/06.

I would like to have someone investigate the material used in the real wheel covers of the 2004 Ford Focus ztw wagon. I believe this product does not protect the vehicle from moving objects.
