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

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


First week in December took 2004 Navigator with 29,000 miles to dealership after hearing a very clunking sound. I was told it needed a catalytic converter. Dealership stated that it would take 2 weeks for part. I called Lincoln to state my complain as to why it was going take so long and was told the warehouse that stored them burnt down. Too make a very trying story short it will be 2 months until I get my Navigator repaired. The dealership told me that they were told by Lincoln that the part has to be made and then tested before they ship it to the dealership. I have never heard of such a thing. I can now understand why people are buying the imports and why american car makers are hurting. I will not buy another Lincoln again.
