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.

2004 Lincoln LS Owner Comments

problem #5

The contact owns a 2004 Lincoln Ls. While driving approximately 30 mph on normal road conditions, the side-impact air bag deployed inadvertently on the front driver's side. There were no warning indicators illuminated on the instrument panel. The driver sustained minor bruising to the shoulder, face, and side of the body due to the moderate force. The police and ambulance were not called to the scene. The vehicle was still able to be driven and is currently being repaired. The failure was related to the air bag sensor. The VIN was unknown. The failure and current mileages were 24,000.

: the contact stated while traveling 60 mph, the vehicle struck a tire lying in the road. The damage was in the front end between the center and passenger side below the headlight. The airbags did not deploy when this occurred. There was no inspection to determine why the airbags did not deploy. Two years later, while driving up a gravel driveway, the passenger side seat airbag deployed without incident. The dealership did a diagnostic test and determined the vehicle had been in a collision causing the airbag to deploy. There was no visible damage to the vehicle and there had been no recent collision.

My wife and I were traveling on the pa. Turnpike when a tractor trailer blew a tire. I struck a small piece of the tire and the side curtain air canopy and seat side airbags deployed, injuring my wife and almost causing an accident!
