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.

problem #2

May 252006

LS 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles


The car was running out of coolant very fast. Then the check engine light kept coming on. You can smell fumes coming through the heating vents. Took it to the dealer & oil is mixing with the spark plugs & with a water midst. Bought the car in 09/2005 with 39,000 miles. Engine needs replaced at 67,000 miles. Haven't been able to drive the car in 5 months. Estimate cost to replace with a used engine is $3,794.60. The dealer sold this car in this condition. They need to recall all the Lincoln Ls.
