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.

2008 Lincoln MKZ Owner Comments

MKZ 6-cyl

The brake and gas pedals on my Lincoln Mkz are located so close to each other and at the same height that I have twice experienced acceleration instead of braking when putting on the brakes because I did not move my foot enough to clear the gas pedal. I have inquired to my dealer about making an adjustment to the brakes pedal height or spacing but was advised that this could not be done. This design is an "accident waiting to happen" and I am lucky that in both instances I was able to react in time to avoid one. If this has not already been brought to the attention of the manufacturer, NHTSA should do so before someone is seriously hurt.
