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.

2010 Lincoln MKX Owner Comments

The parking brake on my Lincoln Mkx will not hold the vehicle on a slope. The dealer and Ford Motor Company say that there is nothing that can be done about it. According to them, the brake is designed to function when the transmission is in park. Using the transmission to hold the car does not comply with the federal regulations for parking brakes which are quite clear. The regs state that: "every combination of motor vehicles must be equipped with a parking brake system adequate to hold the vehicle or combination on any grade on which it is operated, under any condition of loading in which it is found on a public road (free of ice and snow)." There is no mention of the transmission or park in the regulations. The brakes alone will not hold the vehicle so the vehicle is quite dangerous. Property and people will be damaged. The same braking system is used on the Ford edge.
