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 #1

Jul 102007

Focus 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 400 miles


On or about 7/10/2007, my 2007 Ford Focus ZX3 (one week in service, 400 miles odometer) leaked an unknown quantity of fuel onto the floor of the attached enclosed garage at my residence. The quantity of fuel spillage is unknown; however, the fumes were so strong inside the garage, that they contaminated my clothing to the degree that a "gas smell" was noted by a tow truck drive three hours after I was exposed to the fuel spill. The servicing dealer say that the fuel tank was split along the seam of the tank. The servicing dealer is in the process of replacing the gas tank.
