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.

2004 Lincoln Navigator Owner Comments

problem #2

May 052004

Navigator 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 350 miles


The contact had difficulty with the power seats memory setting/power-folding heated exterior mirrors, and the power-deployable running boards. They worked intermittently. The power seats with memory setting had a memory function that should remain set at the driver's preference. However, it sometimes readjusted without warning. The power-folding heated exterior mirrors will not identify programmed positions. The power-deployable running boards will not automatically deploy when the doors were opened. The dealer reprogrammed the vehicle several times in an attempt to correct the problems. Afterwards, the aforementioned continued to work intermittently. No further repairs have been made.
