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

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles

I took my car to the dealership (Steele Ford in Halifax ) and was told that the wrong program was put in the car by Lincoln during assembly . I was also told that if the problem persisted (which it has) that I would have to have the transmission rebuilt out of my own pocket . Should Lincoln be responsible for the repairs since they installed the wrong programing in the transmission from the factory ....would that not be classified as a factory default therefore making Lincoln responsible for the repairs ? I would like to receive feedback from other Lincoln Ls owners who may have encountered the same problems or better yet an answer from Lincoln would even be better .
