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, air bag warning light continues to stay on. Have had to drive car for 3 yrs like this while having fear of air bag not working in case of an accident. 3 mechanics have tried to fix and it only turns off for a few min.S after they attempt a fix with the wiring. The mileage then began about 80,007. About 1.5 yr ago (May 2014) my ac /heater core fluid began leaking. It worsened when ac was turned high, took about 2 months before burning smell was continuously coming from engine after running ac and fluid was always dripping. 6 months (Jan 2016) ago my brake pedal began fluttering when depressed. I had the control arms, ball joints and brakes/rotors replaced. The brake pedal still flutters when slowing from 30 mph quickly. My Lincoln Ls mileage is 86,605

My car has numerous parts that tear up repeatedly, within a 6 months time. Valve cover gasket had replaced twice within a 6 months time. The coil packs go up very often. I had panel buttons just tear up for no reason three times! wheel caps replaced numerous times. Overheating issues, door locking issues, battery replaced twice within 2 years time. Ac issues, (I never used my all). This car has a lot of problems on the T.S.bulletin. I contacted Ford in reference to the multiple issues I was having with the car, the company representatives told me to take the complaint to the establishment of which I had been dealing with. Then they said Lincoln is an independent owned establishment so I am totally confused by this whole ordeal, they know that they have had a lot of multiple problems out of that car. And they refuse to recall some of those (as I would say) hazardous issues. I was at the dealer 2 weeks ago, I was conversing with a rep. At the dealership and he was telling me how the Lincoln Ls was their most problem vehicle, and cash maker for repairs. (oh by the way.......I researched to find this site. To answer the question in the consumer section).
