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.

2001 Lincoln Navigator Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 162005

Navigator 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 59,400 miles


2001 Lincoln Navigator. The contact stated the passenger side outer tie rod broke while driving on the road. The vehicle was slowing from 60-45 mph when this occurred. The contact was able to pull the vehicle over. Also, this broke the inner belts of the passenger side front tire. The vehicle was towed to the dealership at that time. The dealership did not have a reason why this occurred. The contact spoke with Lincoln about the incident. The dealership replaced the outer tie rod end, and realigned the vehicle at the consumer's expense. The contact had to replace the passenger tire, and chose to replace the other tires as well.
