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.

This car has had eight incidents in two years of coil packs failing. I have had multiple other problems with this car, ie (brakes, air conditioning electronics...) Ford can't get the coil problems fixed.

We own a 2001 Lincoln Ls - V8. The engine has a coil on each spark plug. The coils are failing at the rate of one a month. When the coils fail the engine misfires and you have to fight with the car to keep it under control as it lurches on the highway. It is really severe in an uphill failure. I have never owned a car with coil failure. The mechanic tells me (and has coil parts to prove it) that this is a severe Ford problem. I called Ford and they deny any safety issue or wrong doing. I know it is a safety issue and the coils are failing before the recommended spark plug change period!! Ford needs to step up and replace these parts. They are defective and put the driver in an unsafe driving condition.
