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.

Just over 5 yr warranty and only 39K miles of 50K warranty, when parked, driver's door locking system stopped working preventing driver from opening door to exit without rolling down window with extreme difficulty and/or inability in pulling outside door handle. To exit in nml case or in case of collision. Lincoln svc rep states it is a normal occurrence and will cost $480 plus to repair because it is just outside of the 5 year.warranty.

Display in dashboard displayed "blindspot not available". simultaneously, the blind spot warning light on passenger (right) side came on and would not go off for several minutes. Warning message in dashboard display went off on its own, but indicator light will not come on with vehicle in the blind spot.
