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.

Front left tire blew causing to loose control of the car it went off road and slammed into a ditch. Front bumper and quarter panel damage, front axle broke, rims dented, suspension needs to be replaced to name a few. Almost $5000 in damage.

The contact owns a 2007 Ford Focus. The contact stated that the tires would need to be replaced prematurely. The contact first replaced the tires in 2007 and had replaced all of the tires at leat four times since the first failure. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection where they advised the contact that the vehicle was in need of an alignment. The vehicle was repaired but the failure recurred. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 25,000. The VIN was unavailable.

I noticed a vibration that seemed to increase over time of about 2 weeks. I took the vehicle into the dealer where they replaced a wheel bearing and recommended I replace the rear tires due to severe cupping. The tires are Continental contacts with about 10,000 miles on them and should have lasted the next 5 years. I went to the tire shop where they told me that Ford focuses are known to have alignment problems and will destroy their tires prematurely. Researching the internet I found 47 such complaints over the years relating exactly to what I experienced. The problem is the rear suspension is cambered in too much at the top and Ford never made the suspension adjustable. Mine measured 1/4 inch difference between the top of the 15 inch rim compared to the bottom. This sits the car on the inside edge of the tire creating the premature wear. Ford must know this problem exists.

2007 Ford Focus St excessive tire wear. At 71,000 miles the vehicle is due for the fourth set of tires. Goodyear Eagle GT P205/50-16 tires have twice lasted less than 25,000 miles while the tires are warrantied for 50,000 miles. Alignment and balance are good and maintained, no 'unusual' wear patterns. Many owners of this vehicle have reported similar issues.
