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 #3

The 1998 Lincoln Continental is an accident waiting to happen, the slanted windshield above a grey dashboard, causing a reflection in the bright sunlight that makes some objects invisible to the driver. Too many car designs have this fault and should be outlawed for safety reasons. Also the Continental instrument panel cannot be read in certain angles of sun on the panel. You cannot seed the needle on the speedometer and I wonder how many speeding tickets result from this defect. I have added a black cover to my dashboard at my cost to try to correct this problem. If autos are made like this the manufacturer should stand the cost of black out material.
