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 #1

Jun 132008


  • 68,000 miles


Purchased a used 2004 Lincoln Ls with 43,000 miles, with premium warranty my transmission now begins to have hard shift in 3-4 and in reverse. Sometimes when I put on the brakes the transmission hit hard. Jerks the car, to the brakes stop is delayed 10 sec. I had a car come in to my lane with out warning, and due to the transmission jerks when braking my car was struck, minor but if I was going faster I could of lost control. I see alot of complaints, why haven't there been any actions. This car was purchased at $19,000 and I still owe. Know I have a lemon. I even had my transmission flushed. Please note these transmissions are sealed not dip sticks, this fluid changed cost me $250 and I still have problems. The E warning is showing.
