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

Navigator 8-cyl

  • 92,000 miles


Ford has failed to install insulation on the underside of the Lincoln Navigator hood therefore the heat has caused the hood paint and clear coat to bubble and peel. My hood has as many spots on it as a hormonal teenage boy has on his face. This issue has caused injury to the value of my car and my pride in owning this vehicle. Many lawsuits have been filed and successfully won through several states, a nationwide recall needs to happen for this issue.

Rear tailgate paint is bubbling. Research shows that this is common flaw on Ford/Lincoln vehicles from 2000-2005.
