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

Lincoln Navigator air suspension sensor failure at highway speed. Caused vehicle to lose all suspension and drop as low as it would go, providing no suspension. Truck bounced dangerously over the road while attempting to decrease speed and remain within lane. The air suspension system fails to work when cold. Its very bouncy and hard to drive safely. If it haven't happened already, it's just a matter of time before someone gets seriously injured or killed due to this faulty system. These cars needs to be recalled.

No need to elaborate, simply read thru all the articles surrounding the Air Suspension on the Ford product.

The suspension on my Lincoln, for lack of better terminology, is cheap. I compare this to the cheesy rubber suspension Ford also has the audacity to install on the A frame ( squeaky in hot and cold weather ). American made my ass!!!!!! If this is a mirror image of Ford's product then count me out.

My real concern more so than just complaining is a liability concern for the public! The vehicle is bouncing and at times somewhat uncontrollable, in that this could lead up to rolling the vehicle at normal operating speeds on Highways, Freeways, Turnpikes, Etc. Thus causing injury and or death to drivers, passengers, other vehicles, and not to mention Pedestrians.

A recall is not suggested. Instead, it meets a demand status.
