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.

Focus 4-cyl

  • 12,000 miles


2009 Ford Focus SE. Bought new July 2009. Multiple problems with power door locks not unlocking from inside/outside w/key, remote, handles. Warranty work, 3 times in past one (1) year on door locks. Latest 7/15/11. Safety concerns of being trapped in vehicle. Constantly being told by Ford techs. Road dust causing malfunction. Have owned and driven many other makes/models of Ford cars/trucks w/ power locks on gravel roads without problems. Only this car has this problem. 1st. Front passenger door had lock assembly replaced.wouldn't unlock inside or outside. 2nd. Left back wouldn't unlock inside or outside. Door lock adjusted by Ford tech. So far both working ok. 3rd. Trapped outside car. Finally unlocked w/ remote after many attempts. Key in outer lock wouldn't unlock door. Now it's the driver door that has to have the lock assembly replaced and is scheduled to have this done.also have complaint of original new tires (hankook P195/60/R15) wearing out and had to replace at 21,000 miles on 7/09/11. Ps. tire pressure sensor is a useless device.
