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.

  • 900 miles
The contact owns a 2013 Lincoln Mkt. The contact stated that the battery drained completely and there was no access to the trunk. The contact stated that there was not a mechanical override to open the trunk. The vehicle was taken to several dealers and the contact was advised by each of them that there was no remedy for the failure because the vehicle was operating as designed. The dealer then referred him to the manufacturer. The manufacturer was contacted and referred him to page 79 of the owner's manual, which explained how to override the system. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 900 and the current mileage was 13,000. Updated 02/26/13 updated 03/1/2013
