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 Electric

  • 1,250 miles


On 4 separate occasions with 48 hours the "stop safely now" warning appeared on the dash accompanied with a total loss of power and/or the engine shutting off while the vehicle was in motion. These occurred in distinctly different scenarios: While accelerating from a stop, while braking, and two occurrences while traveling at 45 mph and 35 mph. The brakes and steering thankfully still worked however accidents almost occurred in the two higher speed scenarios. The vehicle could be restarted after it was turned off and on again. The warning would disappear with no further information.

Purchased a 2014 Ford Focus electric in July of 2014. About 1 month and 1400 miles later I began to experience problems with the "stop safely now" message. Vehicle will immediately loose power to accelerator while still maintaining power to braking and steering. The problem has occurred 4 times while driving since the 31st of July (today is 5 Aug 2014). Attempted to take to the dealer today. However, the only certified ev technician is on vacation until next week. Ford website says vehicle is not eligible for current recalls. I will attempt to bring vehicle to service center next week.

I was traveling about 35 mph when my car flashed a message "stop safely now" and the car had lost power to the wheels and I was now just coasting. I pulled the vehicle off to the side of the road. I was able to turn off the vehicle and get it started again. I was lucky that I was able to safely get my vehicle to a safe place had this been on a freeway I would have surely been in a serious accident.
