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.

2001 Lincoln Ls--front passenger wheel- there was alot of squeaking noises coming from the wheel before incident occurred. Yesterday, going through a drive-thru, I heard a pop. I got out and inspected the vehicle. The fender was resting on the tire. I called a tow truck and as he was trying to put the car on the tow truck, he showed me the damage. The bolt that holds the ball joint and control arm to the wheel came off. Please investigate this for me, and contact me when you find something out! thx

  • 76,000 miles
The contact owns a 2001 Lincoln Ls. While driving 20 mph, the contact heard a screeching noise coming from the rear of the vehicle. Upon further inspection, he noticed that the rear driver's side wheel subframe was rusted, which caused the lower control arm to fail. The vehicle was towed and the tow driver observed that the opposite rear frame also failed. The vehicle was towed to the dealer and they stated that the subframe was rusted out. The vehicle has not been repaired. The contact would not provide compensation because the warranty was expired. The failure mileage was 76,000.
