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.

Dealers pamphlets and owners manual lists perimeter lights as a feature on 2011 Lincoln mkz but the vehicles do not have them (headlights coming on when you unlock vehicle at night with fob. This is an important safety feature. Ford says it is a misprint although past years model do have the feature.
