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.

All four 17 inch chrome wheels are cracked at the lug nuts on my 2002 Lincoln Ls (strangely similar to recall notice 03V136000). Experienced vibration at highway speeds. I am in the process of replacing the wheels.

I have a 2002 Lincoln Ls. I noticed that there is a recall in place for 2003 chrome rims for Lincoln Ls for cracking wheels. I have the same symptoms as what is described in the 2003 recall. I have cracking in the well of the wheel on my car and around lug nuts on my vehicle. I contacted Lincoln to see if I could be included in this recall. Lincoln told me that I would have to submit the information to this. I would like to have this inspected because I have the same problems happening that the 2003 chrome rims have.

The lug nuts on my 2002 Lincoln Ls have swelled on the lug posts and make it almost impossible to remove. The car went into service and I was phoned and informed by the Lincoln dealership that new lug nuts cost $100 for the car. Ford & Lincoln know of this problem but refuse to correct the problem. Is there any recourse through your organization.

Noticed in 2003 that the wheel hubs were beginning to crack on my chrome wheels. Informed dealer. Did nothing. After a couple of years began to notice a shimmy (shake side to side) motion. Informed dealer, they suggested new tires. Purchased new tires and problem reappeared. Dealer suggested tires had flatspot. Tire mfg. Suggested problem with wheels. Did a search for related problems such as this. Found that a recall was initiated for chrome wheels for 2003 model year, experiencing identical problems and safety issues. The car vibrates at highway speeds and have already lost a lugnut. Tire mfg. When replacing tires damaged a few lugnuts in attempting to remove them.
