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.

2002 Lincoln Continental Owner Comments

problem #1

While driving in the late evening hours, the headlights were not able to be turned on because of a broken switch knob. The 2002 Lincoln Continental was taken to stivers automotive of columbia, SC to replace the lighting switch knob. A complete diagnostic was performed on the car and the dealership decided to replace the entire lighting switch processor at a cost of $1213.73 plus labor of $134.65. The headlight knob broke into two pieces and prevented the switch from being turned on and by not coming on created a safety hazard for my family was were extremely dangerous to other drivers on the freeway. I requested the processor that was removed to see if it really was broken and hope to have the part tested by a lab.
