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.

Focus 4-cyl

: the contact stated a grinding noise was coming from the driver's side front end. The dealership was unable to hear the noise while test driving the vehicle, but replaced the rotors and brake pads in an attempt to repair it. The trunk latch did open from the inside of the vehicle. Updated 05/30/06.
