In The Short Time That I’ve Owned My focus I’ve Had To Return It To The Dealership On 3 Occasions Because The air Bag Light Comes On. The First Time I Brought It In They Had To Replace A Module To The air Bag Component. The Second And Third Time I Brought It In They Found Nothing Wrong. The Third Time I Brought It Back They Gave Me A Recording Device That I Had To Use To Record The air Bag Light Because The air Bag Light Was Not Registering That It Ever Came On. I Had To Record The Light A Total Of 3-4 Times And Then Bring It Back To The Dealership. I Did So And Returned My Car Only To Find Out That This Device Told Them Nothing. So Not Knowing The Exact Problem They Went Ahead And Replaced The Entire airbag. All Of These Attempts Occured Late September Through Mid October. As Of 11/8/2002 The Light Has Not Come Back On. I Feel Know That I’m Left With A False Sense Of Security And The Question Of If I Get Into An Accident Is This air Bag Going To Protect Me. I Was Told That This Is An Isolated Case But I’m Not To Sure About That. I Think This Is A Major Safety Issue And Should Be Taken Into Serious Consideration. Dt

On November 23 2002 I Was In A Accident Where I Broke My Nose And Had Numerous Burises. The Reason I Got Into An Accident Was Because My Wheel And Suspension Broke & Seem To Come Apart. I Had Complained To ford That My Wheel Had Been Shaking And That There Was Something Wrong With It. I Had Taken It Back 4 Times To Get Fixed But Everytime I Got It Back And It Would Shake Just As Bad. Also When I Got Into The Accident My airbags Didnt Deploy At All I Received A Broken Nose From Hitting My Head On The Steering Wheel. The Car Was Shaking Really Bad And It Seem To Pull Me Off The Road Then All Of A Sudden It Was Like A Snap And It Went The Other Direction. I Flew Sideways Up In The air And Hit Two Oak Trees Luckly I Didn’t Die From This Accident If You Would See The Pictures You Would Think How Did She Survive. If The Car Would Have Hit The Oak Trees Two Feet Closer To My Door I Wouldn’t Be Here To Tell You This. The Car Split In Half & Was Totaled.

I Was Driving On Baker Street In West Roxbury, Ma. I Had The Right Of Way When Another Driver In A 2010 Lincoln Mkx Ran A Stop Sign And Hit Me. I Was Hit On The Driver’s Side. The Speed And Force Of The Impact Took Out The Entire Front End Of My Car. My Vehicle Was Dragged Off Baker Street And Into The Intersection Of Baker And Capital. The Driver Who Hit Me Was Driving At Such A Speed, That Before Stopping, They Continued On, Hitting A Stop Sign, Taking It Down And Hitting Another Car, Pushing It Up Onto The Sidewalk Into A Telephone Pole. This Was An Accident That Totaled 3 Vehicles – And – My airbags Did Not Go Off! I Am Writing Because Weeks After The Accident My Lower Back And Shoulders Are Still Causing Me A Great Deal Of Pain. And I Called To Report This Incident To ford After Reading This Has Happened Many Times To Drivers/owners In 2002 ford focus‘s! ford Told Me Their Regional Customer Service Manager ([xxx]) Would Be In Touch In 1 Day – And They Would Want To Look At The Vehicle . . . [xxx] Has Not Been In Touch And I Have Not Heard A Word From ford. I Appreciate The Problems Of airbags Going Off When The Should Not, Or Going Off Unexpectedly – But If airbags Do Not Go Off When There Is An Impact There Is A Problem! If It Happens Once Or Twice It May Be A Fluke – This Is Not The Case! airbag Failure In The 2002 For focus Is A Reported Problem By Many – Reported To You Over And Over – Let There Not Be A Death Because You And ford Did Not Do The Right Thing – Check These Vehicles – All Of Them! One Life Is Too Precious Not To Do What Is Clearly The Right Thing – Do A Recall! Information Redacted Pursuant To The Freedom Of Information Act (foia), 5 U.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr
