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.

Normal clear weather driving down busy street when care suddenly slowed down almost resulting in a collision with vehicles behind me. The engine stopped, I restarted with very limited drivability the etc failsafe mode kicked in for no apparent reason this issue must be addressed before someone is seriously injured.

I was driving to work early in the morning with my child in the back seat. While getting off the freeway (thank god) my 2004 Lincoln Ls went into "etc engine failsafe mode". I could not accelerate or drive over 20. At this point, I had to pull over because I was in traffic and I did not want to get hit. Once I pulled over, I turned the car off for about 5 mins and then turned it back on. Starting driving out of the parking lot and once I got to the main road, the error message came on again. Could not accelerate over 20 again. At this point, I did 20 all the way to the sitters house to drop off my daughter and tried to drive my car to the dealership. I have been having issue on top of issue with this 2004 Lincoln Ls and by the reviews looks like I am not the only one. I goggled the error message and I find nothing but angry customers who have similar Lincoln. Someone needs to get to the bottom of this and have the company recall this car or pay for labor and parts for everyone. This is a inconvenience to everyone who owns a Lincoln and having these problems.
