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.

2005 Ford Focus Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 282005


  • 132,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Ford Focus. The contact stated all four tires would exhibit premature wear due to the frame alignment failing. The vehicle was taken to the dealer numerous times where the tires have been replaced and several alignments were performed but the tires continued to wear prematurely. The dealer inspected, aligned and changed all four tires and the problem continued to recur. The manufacturer advised the alignment specifications were correct and advised that the failure was possibly caused by the contact's tires. The manufacturer would not provide any assistance. The failure mileage was 132,000 and the current was unknown. The VIN was unavailable.
