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.

2010 Ford Focus Owner Comments

problem #2

Focus 4-cyl

I had similar problem as complaint filed odi10307817. I would have a loud noise like the car suspension was bottoming out when going over moderate bumps. I also had excessive tire wear on front tires at only 32000 miles, front tires had to be replaced. Ford said they could not duplicate the problem of bottoming out after much complaining Ford finally fixed everything but said the front end was out of alignment. When asked what was done to fix the problem was informed that the subframe had to be adjusted and because of that an alignment had to be performed. I even found on Ford's website a service bulletin for there service technicians for the loud noise when bottoming out.
