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.

2012 Ford Focus Electric Owner Comments

problem #1

Focus Electric

  • 2,000 miles


To date 8/20/2013 the car has died 8 times and 4 times in the last week. The sequence I use to get it started again is after the ssn warning, pull over, turn ingition off, open door, close door, lock car, unlock car, press start. It only started to happen after the update was done. It happens over bumps, on the freeway, in a parking lot and happens at all speeds and happens randomly. Fortunately it has not yet caused an accident but it easily can especially if in the fast lane on the freeway or in an intersection.
