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.

Ford Focus tires 2011 Ford Focus problems with tires/suspension and warranties purchased 2011 Ford Focus new 20 months ago (with kumho tires, evidently installed at factory) and it has had regular dealer(s) maintenance. Took to purchasing dealer - (luther) North country, coon rapids mn for regular maintenance on November 16, 2012 with 35,366 miles. Was told that tires were 2/32 showing cord (several 1" by 3" spots), 2/32, 4-6/32, and 4-6/32; and dealer recommended 4 new tires (tiger paw) costing $561.95. I asked and was told there was no price reduction from either Ford or kumho warranty. Note that Ford tire warranty guide booklet states 30% for 24K 36K miles; kumho (web) states 60K mileage coverage and 40% for 36K. Incidentally as a conservatively driving mechanical engineer, both my new Sable and Ranger met/exceeded tire mileage coverages. I have been happy with North country, but have lost confidence with Focus and kumho tire company; just got new tires from a local, well-regarded, tire shop; and think Ford/kumho should reimburse me at least $180 (30% of the new tires cost). Note: I hadn't imagined 60K miles tires going through the cords at 36K miles. We recently returned from a 4500 mile mainly interstate trip. If it had been much longer, a tire might well have blown.on the interstate.

Focus

  • 11,304 miles
The contact owns a 2011 Ford Focus. The contact stated that the front driver side and both rear tires were worn because the alignment was not properly configured. The contact originally took the vehicle to the dealer where the tires were rotated but to no avail. The contact stated that the dealer had to obtain an alignment kit to reset the wheel base. The contact eventually had all four tires replaced. The failure mileage 11,304 and the current mileage was 13,600.
