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.

I have a Lincoln aviator because I love them but it is such a eye sore to walk up to my suv and see this ugly crack in my tail gate, Letting mositure in that could short out the wires, As much as we pay for our cars they should be able to stay together

Crap work done. Sucks that I will always have this problem unless someone gets off their ass and does something about it to resolve the actual problem.

Our Lincoln Avaitor is in excellent condition and we take very good care of it. One day i noticed a large crack right in the center of the liftgate. I did some research on the web and found many other owners facing the same issue with this vehicle. Hope Lincoln stays true to itself and orders a recall to fix this problem.
