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.

The heated and cooled seats do not work. anytime the battery loses power you have to take it to the dealer to have it repaired.

problem #1

Aviator AWD 4.6L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 77,050 miles

in aug of 2011 my truck got broken into and the theifs left in interior lights on and drained my battery charged it up and noticed my heated and A/C seat button didn't work at all not even lit up .... checked the fuses they were good there was power to the switch. searched online sites and found out that its common when ur battery dies or u change the battery that ur seats wont work ... and the only way to get them to work is u have to go to the dealer and the have to calibrate the computer which they told me that it would cost me $145... i had spent $150 on a new battery cause it was time to change the old one cause it wasn't keeping the charge very well why the hell should i have to spend $145 to get my seats to work properly when that problem should never happen when u change the battery no other cars do that problem ... thats a problem thats needs to be fixed for free from the dealer .... UNBELIEVABLE !!!!! THE NEED TO DO A RECALL ON THESE CARS THERE IS JUST TO MANY MANUFACTURER PROBLEMS THAT THE DEALER NEEDS TO STAND UP AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THERE MESS UPS FOR BUILDING SUCH CHEAP CARS THAT HARD WORKING PEOPLE PAY LOTS OF MONEY FOR !!!!!!!!!!!
