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 #1

Nov 142011

Navigator 4WD V8 5.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 92,000 miles


The fact that Ford acknowledges that the hood paint peeling off along with the clear coat and the multiple successful lawsuits with no recall or any assistance for owners make me rethink ever purchasing a Ford again. Not only am I embarrassed to drive my Navigator b/c my hood has as many spots on it's hood as a hormonal teenager has on their face, but I can never get what I owe on it since nobody wants to take on that repair.

I have looked into getting it sanded, painted, & clear coated again but it is very expensive and I shouldn't have to pay out of pocket for an expense like this something that isn't a part of owning a car. Would you pay to have the foundation fixed on your house if the builders didn't do it properly? I wouldn't and I see the paint job as the foundation of the vehicle since it keeps it from rust and other potential damage.

Ford needs to address this for all owners and until they do I am never going to buy a Ford vehicle nor recommend them.
