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.

2002 Lincoln LS Owner Comments

My 2002 Lincoln Ls V8 has broken down in numerous ways. All ignition coils have had to be replaced, two window motors, airbag connector clip, my tie rod ends are bad, my car has actually shut off completely while driving up the 15 North three times while my son was in the car with me and now my transmission has completely stopped working. When it came to fixing the airbag connector problem Lincoln told me it was fixed and I went to pick up my car and it was still doing the same thing the three beeps so they fixed it for free and then told me my instrument panel on one side was burned out but the lights seems to work on it when I turn them on. They wanted to charge me 800 dollars for that but I refused. The ignition coil replacement was roughly 1000 dollars and I am waiting on my estimate for my transmission. Both window motors were 200 dollars a piece. I have had numerous taillights replaced and actually had a door lock jam closed on me. I truly feel that this car is a safety hazard for me and my son if it turns completely off at 65 miles an hour on a freeway with my son in the car.

Faulty window regulators in a 2002 Lincoln Ls - while driving the drivers window and right rear window glass suddenly slammed down inside the doors with no warning within several days of each other. My car has 46,000 miles. This should not be happening and could be a serious safety issue. The problem is wide spread in the Lincoln - do a google search for faulty window regulators in a Lincoln Ls - you will not believe how common a problem this is. There is a technical service bulletin for this problem - Ford knows it. I had both windows repaired at a cost of $436.36 - Ford agreed to pay $210 of the bill........ this should be a recall - windows are not suddenly supposed to disappear.

2002 Lincoln Ls. The consumer stated two window regulators; broke within a month of each other. The windows did not roll up or down, and they did not stay up. This started two weeks ago. The vehicle was taken to the dealership, who stated it would cost $300 to fix the windows, and the consumer has not had the problem fixed yet.

I have had problems with the window mechanism in my Lincoln Ls. Several dealership service centers informed me that a lot of the Lincoln were having the same problem with a faulty window mechanism but they would not cover it because the car was out of warranty. I spoke to Ford and they agreed that because of the faulty mechanism they would fix the window for a discount. I paid 40 dollars for a 270 dollar repair. Recently the car has had the same problem with the faulty window mechanism. I brought it to the dealership expecting it to be covered the same as the last time. They told me they could not cover the cost of the window again. I contacted Ford who told me they don't know about the problems with the faulty window mechanisms. This problem caused damage to the inside of the car and makes the car vulnerable to break ins. I am unable to feel safe in the car now because the window will not roll all the way up. I would like an investigation into this issue for myself and all the other Lincoln owners having the same problem.
