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

Navigator 8-cyl

Dealership replaced the motor and the computer of driver's seat that was too loose and moved back and forth while driving, causing a distraction to the consumer. 6 months later, consumer experienced the same problem. The vehicles brakes squeaked, the door panel was loose, the side mirror motor failed. There was a rattling noise coming from the rear center console and there was a loud humming noise from the passenger dash in cold weather. The gear shifter broke while driving. The original windshield wiper left a black smear on the window when it rained which made it difficult to see. The front door molding warped. The consumer no longer wasn't the vehicle and has requested a refund.
