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.

There has been many complaints all over north America about the 2003 Lincoln aviator transmission that people complain about when u put ur car from drive to rev or park to rev or drive it goes in so rough that it sometimes sounds like the tranny is gonna fall off or something is gonna break and ford knows about this problem and the haven't done a recall to fix that problem ...... im embarrassed to have such a nice truck that was worth $65,000 brand new from the dealer and u get out of a parking spot and there are people nearby and hear ur tranny and give a look like wow that tranny is messed up .. i take good care of my truck ... i do all the maintenance when its needs it this needs to be fixed cause if it doesn't i will personally drive my truck to the dealer park it infront and light it on fire ...just to show them how much of a piece of sh*t this truck is cause of all the manufacture problems that the dealer doesn't wanna fix .......WE NEED A RECALL!!!!!!!
