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.

2004 Lincoln Aviator Owner Comments

problem #2

Aviator 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30 miles


The climate control does not work properly in the auto mode during winter driving, causing cold air to blast out of the demister and defroster vents. The windows cannot be cleared of minor icing and the driver is thermally very uncomfortable. The temperature difference from the floor vents vs. The demisters is as much as 70 degrees colder. The demister vents have measured temperatures of 40 degrees when the floor vent reads 110 degrees. Manual manipulation of the system has little effect and is highly unsafe.
