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.

The contact owns a 2007 Ford Focus. The contact stated that there was a windshield defect because it was not intact. The sealant was placed on the roof of the vehicle, which contributed to the faulty windshield. She also stated that there was an alignment issue that caused the vehicle to steer to the left while driving 70 mph. The vehicle mats were steamed by the dealer and never dried. As a result, the windows were frosted inside the passenger compartment. The contact found rust in the dashboard components and the fuse box. The current mileage was 897 and failure mileage was 692.

Focus 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 200 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Ford Focus. The contact stated that there is a grey, blackish color reflecting through the vehicle's windshield. As a result, he can not see the air bag, speedometer, the vents, and a hump figure. He stated that the failure prevents him from seeing the vehicles in front of him and is similar to looking through a screen door. The contact noticed the failure the next day after the vehicle was purchased on April 28, 2007. Ford stated that there is no return policy even though the vehicle is brand new. The current and failure mileages were 200. Updated 05/21/07
