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.

2006 Lincoln LS Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 012013


  • 87,500 miles


Car act like it stalls/skips/misfires around 2200 RPM, engine shuts off & "etc engine failsafe mode" is indicated. Diagnosis as electronic throttle control resulting in an unsafe driving condition typically when accelerating on freeway or causing complete engine shutdown. As indicated on a wed chat page this Lincoln Ls engine failsafe mode is a significant problem when the car won't go past 20 mph & then you get to play a game of lets Dodge 70 mph traffic w/ semi-trucks (where the minimum post interstate speed is 45 mph). From several web sites, it appears this error is a common safety concern with a number of Lincoln Ls's.
