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.

  • 12,200 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Lincoln Navigator. The contact stated that while driving 35 mph a noise was in the rear of the vehicle. The contact drove onto the side of the road to determine where the noise was coming from and noticed that the chrome was coming off of the rear drivers side wheel. The chrome peeled to the point where the rim weights were hanging off of the vehicle and hitting the brake caliper. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer and who stated that the rims needed to be replaced. The contact stated that the vehicle was difficult to drive because the steering wheel was vibrating and made it difficult to control the steering wheel. The contact noticed additional complaints regarding the rims and the manufacturer had not provided any assistance toward the replacement. The failure mileage was 12,200.

Navigator 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1 miles
I purchased my vehicle brand new in January of 2003. I have had numerous problems with the vehicle since day 1.the entire computer had to be changed. The truck stalled on me at highway speed. It took over 2 1/2 weeks to get my vehicle is a list of the other problems I have had. The rear vent motors have been changed. I had my windows stuck open with half of my electical system out for over four days due to the problem. The side view mirror motor had to be changed. The power running boards have never worked properly and the dealer can't find the problem. All four wheels had to be changed due to peeling. A new alternator had to be installed which left my vehicle dead without warning. The cd changer had to be replaced. The entire navigation system had to be replaced. The coil had to be changed three times. Which once again died at highway speed on me. I was nearly hit by a semi truck from behind. I thought for sure that my family and I were going to be seriously injured. It is at the dealer right now getting looked at. Twice while being at the dealer for service, my vehicle was hit needing repair. The list goes on. As you can say my vehicle is at the dealer more than it is at home, where it should be. Most of the problems tie my vehicle down for more than a week. I am fed up and tired of all the problems. I don't feel comfortable driving such an unsafe vehicle. I know it will stall again on me. Hopefully there will be no injuries or fatalities due to such an unreliable vehicle.
