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.

1998 Lincoln Continental Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 222003

Continental 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 58,000 miles


The automatic dimming inside rearview mirror apears frosted over half of the glass distorting the view to the rear. This mirror was replaced less than one year ago for a similar problem. Research on the interrnet indicates this to be a common problem with Lincoln Continentals of multiple years in the late 1990's. there are numerious incidents of this defect in the NHTSA complaints on this site. Ford Motor Co aparently has no solution to this defect as current replacement mirrors fail agin in less than one year. I beleive this defect should be a safety recall as the defective mirror greately distorts rear vision.
