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.

2006 Ford Focus St. Driver side seat back has broken/cracked during normal operation. Reaching for change in pocket to go through a toll booth, seat back frame broke on the right hand side causing driver to lurch back toward back seat and temporarily lose control of the vehicle. Ford Motor Company refuses to assist in repairs. Seat back should never break as it is the only protection a passenger has in the event of a rear end collision. Seat back has not been repaired.
