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.

1998 Ford Crown Victoria Owner Comments

problem #2

Jul 162014

Crown Victoria LX 4.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 136,000 miles


I have had three of these blow outs on a Crown Victoria, the first one at under 120k miles. At $100 for the coil, $27 for the save-a-thread and a pack of spark plugs every time one of these blows it's adding up. This is obviously a defect and should be fixed by them. I bought the car off of my grandfather at 70k and it was his baby. I have had mass amounts of yearly repairs on this Crown Victoria since I bought it.
