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.

2/21/14 to whom it may concern, my name is [xxx]and I would like to raise an awareness to an issue that is reoccurring without any permanent solution. I set out in this endeavor to get a car in 2009 and needless to say the rocky road that had lead to this point in time has been rough. The car in question is the 2010 Ford Focus that I was told, at the time, would be a suitable vehicle to fit the required modifications I"D need fully operate a motor vehicle. The modifications that were made are as follows: 1. zero effort steering, 2. a hand control for acceleration and braking, 3. a backup steering pump in case the steering went out I would still have control of the vehicle, 4. a ?V? grip handle with counterweight on the steering wheel, 5, a pedal guard over the gas pedal. Not but 6 months after the fresh install did it give me operating issues. The issue was that the stock pump is a light duty part and with the added stress of the additional backup steering pump it would make the main pump work too hard and allow air into the system. About 11 months later after this issue was ?resolved" it happened again, and 2 more times after the second incident in about the same time frame of every 11 months (almost a year but never quite exact) up until just recently when the steering system failing in early January(bringing the total to 4). There was a lot of back and forth "he said, she said" in regards to the problem between Ford, drive master, and the company that had installed the modifications (mc mobility). I would like to make the appropriate people aware of the incompatibility issue so that it does not happen to any future individuals and this combination is not recommended in any future circumstances [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
