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

  • 42,000 miles


In 2007, I purchased my new Ford Focus based on the recommended rating in consumer reports. Did you know that when the A/C of the Focus stops functioning, so does the auto? I am not mechanically inclined. I don't know if most or all autos are built this way. If so, based on the difficulties I have had just to find out this fact about Focus, and the $1,400 expense I incurred fixing problems, I would strongly suggest that this fact clearly stated in any ratings discussion, in bold fonts. My car had been maintained at the dealer every 3,000 miles, has only 42,000 miles on it, without accidents, tickets, violations. Foremost, the A/C should have lasted much longer. I am not sure that the recommended rating was warranted.
