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.

1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Owner Comments

problem #3

Mark VIII LSC 4.6L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 99,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Driver's side door handle broke when I opened my door too harshly (was in a hurry and running late). It somehow snapped and kept the latch open. I had to drive around for a week with my seatbelt through the interior door handle because the door wouldn't latch.

Part was $90, and the mechanic at my work spent 4 hours fixing it for me.

A month ago, the passenger side door handle snapped. I left it. The driver opens the door from the inside now to let the passenger in.

Yet another complaint about this defective part from FORD.

Mark VIII LSC 4.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,104 miles

I am in the U.S Navy, just got stationed in Hawaii. I went and bought a 1998 Mark VIII LSC with 90,000 miles, 1 week later I was in the Walmart parking lot with my 18 month old daughter in the backseat (car-seat) I got out of the drivers seat and shut the door , I walked over to the passenger side of the car to open the door to reach in back and grab my daughter, I realized the passenger door was locked... so I went around the car to the drivers side and as I went to open the door THE DOOR HANDLE BROKE!!!!! the car wasn't running, so my infant child was locked in a car in 91 degree weather !!!!!! I called 911 but after 6 minutes and a crowd of people trying to help I SMASHED THE WINDOW to save her!!!! I will hate Lincolns until the day I die.
