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 #1

May 152007

Aviator 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,000 miles


The switch, attached to the brake pedal, which releases the shift lock, and activates brake lights, has failed twice. The first time, we were able to remove the switch and clean the internal contacts, and the problem was fixed for approx. Six months. The second time, I was stopped in traffic by another driver to inform me that my brake lights were not working and he almost rear-ended me. I essentially went to the local dealership to purchase a new part, only to find out that Ford has completely changed the design, obviously admitting a design flaw.
