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

Continental 8-cyl

The consumer states that 1998 Lincoln Continental had one headlight that became unaligned and was shining the beam straightened up in the air. This was the driver's side left headlight. Was having water leakage and around the light was turning black. The warning light on the dash board was saying check brake lamp, but the brake lamps were both working. The owner thought that the headlight shorted out, causing that inside light on the dashboard to come on. This started in the past couple of months. The owner has not had the car checked yet, but was going to take it to dealer. The owner could not afford to pay $400 for a headlight. The owner has not contacted Ford.
