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.

problem #2

MKZ 4-cyl

  • 500 miles


New 2014 Lincoln Mkz hybrid bought on 12/12/14 goes into gear while in park without pressing brake and with blinking green light on (accessory mode & not drive). From initial purchase 9now 9 months ago) this happened about a couple of dozen times - there are witnesses (including passengers riding in the car) when this has happened. Car is dangerous at 0 mph. Ford/Lincoln apparently had a recall on Mkz hybrids for this problem supposedly for models mfg. In Mexico (thru Oct. 2013 ?)......well this one car was missed. Vehicle has been back to the dealer 3 times now but this safety problem still persists.

The contact was made aware of recall NHTSA campaign id number 13V594000 (power train). However, the VIN was not included. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 28,000.
