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.

Tried to tap the brakes to take the cruise control off and it wouldn't disengage. Tapped harder and then stomped on the brake to release it and stop from hitting the car in front of me. After that, it was very hard to make the brakes work. Took it a Ford dealer while it was still under warranty and they claimed they couldn't duplicate it. Finally took it to a Lincoln dealer after the 50K mile warranty expired and they made me pay for a new brake booster. Now the car won't start everytime because it says the brake isn't depressed, but of course, it was!

The contact owns a 2011 Lincoln Mkx. The contact stated that while driving approximately 60 mph and decelerating, the vehicle vibrated excessively. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the contact was informed that the rotors needed to be replaced. Only the rear rotors were replaced. The manufacturer was notified of the defect. The approximate failure mileage was 17,000. The VIN was unavailable.
