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.

2007 Ford Focus Owner Comments

problem #3

Jan 102013


  • 76,000 miles


I was on my way to work and the knob to change your air setting to defrost broke, which eventually cause my windshield to ice up and for me to go in the ditch.I took the car into Ford 3 times to get it fixed until they told me the main box that changes which direction the air comes out was broken ($2,000 fix) and the mechanic said its common on Focus's. I asked why it wasn't recall and they said its not a safety issue, I responded "so your windshield freezing over and going in the ditch because of it isn't a safety issue?" then he agreed, but I guess Ford doesn't still.
