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

Nov 012005

LS 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 31,700 miles


My wife was stopped at a stop light and started to move up in traffic to close a gap between her and vehicle in front of her when the 2002 Lincoln Ls suddenly surged forward hitting the vehicle in front of her. Brakes were applied but the vehicle continued to surge forward. She finally stopped the vehicle and then put the vehicle in reverse to back away from the vehicle in front of her. With her foot on the brake, the vehicle surged in reverse and hit the vehicle behind her. The vehicle sustained damage in both front and rear. Vehicle was taken to Lincoln dealership where they stated that the vehicles computer systems did not show a code. Ford Motor Company was contacted by the vehicles owner.
