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.

We have been having braking and transmission issues with our 2006 Lincoln Navigator and have been told today that the vehicle has issues with brake rotors overheating, ABS failure and transmission failure. We have been told these conditions can happen suddenly as we have experienced.

We have been having brake, transmission and air suspension problems that have become more frequent. The vehicle has been back to the dealer more than six times to be repaired, but they have done nothing as they claimed that computer showed nothing happened or the could not find the cause of the problems. Ford sent a field representative to inspect the vehicle, but he said the same thing. Was told by a dealer that Ford did risk studies and weighed the cost of admitting to an issue, and letting a few people get injured or die over the cost it would pay in the event of a recall. The dealer we purchased our Lincoln Navigator from has banned me from getting this looked at again at his dealership, and as mentioned in the Ford database I am flagged wherever I go. Also, they have had an authorized Ford after market vendor install an illegal device on my vehicle tv viewing by the driver, at the dealership and as a part of their normal selling practice.
