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.

2014 Lincoln MKZ Owner Comments

problem #1

MKZ 4-cyl

Incident 1: while filling gas tank I left the hose unattended while I waited inside the vehicle. The pressure in the tank from filling the vehicle was enough to push the gas spout out of the tank. As a result about 3 gallons of fuel spilled on the floor. Incident2: While filling gas tank I was standing over the hose, not holding the handle. I was waiting to fill up the vehicle. I witnessed the spout pop out of the gas tank and gasoline spilled on my shirt, pants and shoes. I have never had this happened to me before with any vehicle. It seems it needs some sort or pressure relief valve so that it doesn't eject the gasoline hose and spout so violently. The in indents happened two weeks apart.
