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.

Windshield wiper motor on my Ford Focus. They slowly stopped working and then the hole unit went out on my 2 year old car. There is showing a recall for 2003 to 2005 Ford Focus wiper motors but some how my car is not on that recall. Nothing has been fixed yet because my extended warranty does not cover the wiper motor. This is an on going issue and a safety issue that Ford should have to fix... this is why we pay so much money for these cars.

Windshield wiper motor goes if it gets clogged up with a small amount of snow. The way the car is designed when you brush the car off from snow, some of it lodges into area that is hard to get the snow out of, when wipers are turned on the motor does not work. Had this replaced approx 4 or 5 months ago, and now it has happened again. I was told by the Ford service dept this has happened to other Focus owners. I have owned many different cars of varying makes and models and this is the first time I have ever had this problem, it is definately a design flaw. Some type of guard needs to be installed to protect it from snow and ice.
