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 Owner Comments

problem #1

LS 8-cyl

The electrical coils in the 2001 Lincoln Ls are a major expense imposed upon the owner. These coild are over $280 to replace and usually after replacing one another soon goes out or goes out on the same day as the replaced coil. Alll of the mechanics at Lincoln are aware of this problem and said its a major problem with the car. I have replaced 4 of the 8 as today and will be replacing another one this week. I think consumers must be made aware of this problem. I am in the market for purchasing a new car and I mus say, "buyer beware of Lincoln-Mercury. Hats off to chrylsler, the dealer of all of my previous cars. I had no major problems with none of the 3 cars I purchased from them. I just cannot believe rthis is happening to me and I am sure so many other consumers of this very pretty car that's a lemon!.
