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.

This has been a continuous issue when using the cruise control at any speed. When the cruise control is on, and the vehicle is traveling on a downhill slope, there is a noise coming from under the hood while it is trying to maintain the speed. The sound is something like a humming/grinding/ticking noise. I have had multiple technicians go for a drive with me to try diagnose the issue and they have all said that there is an issue. However, to date, they have not been able to fix it and the last technician said it must be a normal noise, even though no other Lincoln I have test drove can recreate the noise.
