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.

The lift gate on my 2005 Lincoln Aviator cracked just above the emblem from the read glass down to the emblem. The gate was not open or been hit. Just woke up one morning and the crack was there. I have notice while driving around there are several other Lincoln Aviators that have the same crack.

Aviator

  • 39,500 miles
Owner of 2005 Lincoln Aviator (acquired late 2006)kept exclusively in garage. Currently has 39,500 miles. A vertical crack has recently appeared near the emblem (right side) on the rear liftgate panel below the rear window. The entire liftgate portion which contains the window and the emblem has to be replaced. The vehicle is no longer under warranty, and as previously stated the dealership states that Ford/Lincoln will not stand behind its vehicle. Also, it seems the crack may prevent the from closing securely.
