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.

2002 Lincoln LS Owner Comments

problem #1

LS Sedan V8

Love the car. The air conditioning is the only major problem after 13 years. Car has no garage in Northern climate, yet the body remains like new. Only one other problem (minor): ever since I got the car I've been unable to keep the traction light off. After a cold start, it comes on 15-30 minutes later, showing on the control itself and in my dash as "on," even though it usually isn't. No indication that the control isn't working--so a small nuisance to the driver.

I've tried to warm up to an MKZ, but investing another $25,000-30,000 in a car that's a come-down in style and performance compared to the Lincoln LS seems like a waste of money. I'll keep driving the LS, and if I have to make a change, I'll "try to like" a sporty Caddy like the CTS or hope that Lincoln has brought back the Continental.

I really regret the loss of the LS. All of the similar U.S. vehicles are underpowered and undistinguished (hate the sway-back design that's become inescapable).
