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.

The contact owns a 2004 Lincoln Ls. While driving at an unknown speed, the emergency light illuminated on the instrument panel. In addition, the air conditioner blows hot air from the driver's side vents and cold air from the passenger side vents. The contact stated that these two failures were related to one another. The dealer stated that it would cost $100 to replace the part and $600 for labor. The contact does not want to pay for the repair. The dealer stated that there were no recalls.

The contact owns a 2004 Lincoln Ls. When the accelerator pedal was depressed, the vehicle would not move. When the vehicle finally began to move, it failed to gain speed. The dealer repaired the vehicle within three weeks; however, the failure persisted and the vehicle would stall. Additional repairs were made on more that one occasion, but the failure recurred and the vehicle began to shake profusely. The failure mileage was 53,231 and current mileage was 58,200. Updated 12/11/08 the engine leaked oil, the steering wheel made a squeaking noise. The passenger window would not go down. The air condition did not blow cold air. Updated 12/11/08.

LS 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,836 miles
First it started out in July 2007, ac wasn't blowing like it should be replaced control heads. Then my trac control light came on and park brake light was on checked and advised replaced speed sensor. Then check engine light came on found upstream bank 2 02 sensor reading out of spec. Replaced 02 sensor and clear codes. That cost me$1285.51. Which I replaced sensor, spark plugs, coil then in Jan 2008 my transmission shift hard into reverse checked and advised found faults in solenoid, valve body, trans filter, repaired clear codes, ok. Replaced drive belt and pulley. That bill was $1318.72. Well then in 08/2008 same thing transmission shifts rough concern cylinder misfire. Check engine light back on. Thank god had a recall from Ford on that. Found contamination in both sides replaced affected coils, plugs, and cover which they only replaced 4 of the 8 coils. That would have been $593.18. Then on 08/2008 coolant leak just 3 days after getting it out of the shop had to replace leaking thermostat connector. Haven't had any problems running hot until they worked on it 08/11/2008. The power window was inoperative. The dealer replaced the regulator/motor. Updated 10/22/08.
