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.

Vehicle is leaking fuel. Took it to the dealership for repair to find out due to a manufacturing error one of the welds rusted thus creating a hole in the top of the fuel tank. Was told this is a very common problem with this vehicle and its twin, the Ford edge. Was instructed that the repair cost would be $1800 and although it is a common problem due to a manufacturing error, it is not under recall with Ford/Lincoln. We contacted Lincoln directly and they said they were aware of the problem but would not offer us any insight as to why this issue is not under recall or help with the repair costs if they agree it is a "common issue". upon talking to other Ford edge and Lincoln Mkx owners online, this is a huge problem with these vehicles with 1000's of effected vehicles. This is an issue that is life threatening and could cause serious damage and bodily harm, if not death, if not corrected.

The fuel system and tank leaked fuel in several places. The fuel line leaked fuel over the engine manifold. The fuel tank has a leak at the seam where upper and low tank halves joint. Both leaks presented a significant fire hazard. The fuel line leak was at the engine manifold. The fuel tank leak was next to the exhaust system.

Park my car after returning from work. A couple hours later my wife returned in her car and noticed the strong smell of gasoline in the garage. Upon further inspection, the weld seem on the gas tank has separated and leaking gas. There is a recall for this issue # 08S06 but the dealership has informed me that my manufacturing date does not match that of the recall. This to me seems suspicious.
