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.

2003 Lincoln Aviator Owner Comments

Aviator 8-cyl

August 9, 2003, my 2003 Lincoln Aviator started a rear end whining noise approximately a 1000 miles after purchased. The dealer was told by the manufacturer to do nothing. On 9/29/03, the dealer added a synthetic oil (lubricant) to quiet the whining. It did not work. The dealer promised a repair by 11/15/03 and 12/15/03. I will attempt to address this under Maryland's lemon law.
