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.

2005 Lincoln Aviator Owner Comments

problem #1

Aviator 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Owner says that cold air blows out of the vent during cold weather. Although the vehicle has warmed up. This happens even after the temperature has been set. Owner has contacted the dealer and the manufacturer and they've both said that what is happening is meeting specifications. In addition, snow collects on the windshield and the inside would fog unless air was directed at a constant high fan setting and at high heat setting. This setting exacerbates the problem with the side defoggers by increasing the flow of cold air to the front seat occupants.
