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.

While traveling at 40 mph on flat, smooth two lane roadway the driver side curtain and side seat airbags deployed striking driver on left shoulder and facial area. There was no side impact or rough road prior to deployment. Driver was able to keep control of vehicle and move to berm. Driver suffered soft tissue trauma to left shoulder, upper arm and face. Side curtain airbag damaged interior roof header upon deployment. Driver seat side airbag appears to have not fully deployed and expanded inside the seat ripping out a 3 foot area of stitching and tearing the leather seating material in the immediate area. Contacted Ford Motor Company and they refused responsibility.

The contact owns a 2004 Lincoln Ls. The contact stated that the plastic panel on the rear of the front driver and passenger side seats detached three times. The failure would cause the seat to lean back and expose the electronic wiring in the seat. The manufacturer advised that the part was not covered. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was unknown and the current mileage was 43,000. If not fixed passanger can get hurt. Updated 10/26/2011

While shifting gears the vehicle jerked and vibrated uncontrollably. The driver was able to maintain control of the vehicle and pulled over. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection. However, mechanic could not duplicate the problem at this time. Blemish in rear leater seats. Engine stalls out and occasions surges/hesitates. Very hard 1-2 shift and transmission hunts 4-5 shift. No problem found. Transmission was upgraded for 2004 Ls to syncro type, which accounts for a crisp 1-2 shift. Under load going up hills vehicle will buck/loses power on acceleration. Powertrain control module (PCM) upgraded. Right side visor inoperative and replaced. Left front sill panel popped off. Sill panel reattached. Cigarette lighter inoperative and replaced. When steping on gas vehicle hesitates then takes off. No problem found. Traction control and ABS lamps were on. Left front ABS sensor replaced.
