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 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 012009


  • 70,000 miles


I have a 2006 Ford Focus and I am a student at Texas state university in san marcos Texas. I am 22 years old and been self sufficient since I was 18 years old. I chose a Ford Focus because the reviews were good and the price was right. Last November my key just would not come out of the ignition. I had several mechanics look at it and they say the fix is a little less then $800. I had looked online to see if the part was recalled but it wasn't. there are over 2 million people off of google that have the same exact problem especially the 2006 Ford Focus. I have contacted Ford but their customer service did not remotely care that its a malfunction on their part. I am unable to pay $800 when I pay already for my car, insurance, my apartment, and most important school. If there is any way some one could contact me I would be more then willing to speak about this problem.
