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.

2003 Lincoln Navigator Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 102005


  • miles


Driving on interstate; cruise control set at 70 mph; engine revved to full speed and could not be disengaged by the off or by changing speed of cruise; braking would slow the vehicle temporarily; was only able to stop the vehicle by braking which did not stop the vehicle but slowed it somewhat and then I put the vehicle in neutral and turned off the ignition. Vehicle was not able to be driven until it was towed to a dealer and the cruise control was disconnected. It was a very frightening experience. Also smelled something burning after the vehicle was stopped. The vehicle was a 2003 Lincoln Navigator.
