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 #1

  • 90,000 miles


The contact owns a 2001 Lincoln Ls. While driving approximately 25 mph and proceeding to make a turn, the steering wheel vibrated excessively. The vehicle began to pull to the right without assistance. The driver pulled the vehicle over to the side of the road. The contact made several attempts to maneuver the steering wheel, but was unsuccessful. The vehicle was immediately taken to an independent mechanic for inspection. The technician stated that the failure was contributed to the lower ball joint and lower control arm. The vehicle was not repaired. The VIN was excluded from NHTSA campaign id number 003359001 (suspension:front:control arm:lower ball joint). The failure mileage was 90,000 and current mileage was 106,000.
