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.

2006 Lincoln Navigator Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 062014


  • 91,000 miles


2006 Lincoln Navigator was parked. Entered vehicle and inserted key in ignition. I cranked the vehicle, sat back to have the car warm up. About 5 seconds after cranking the vehicle, air bag inadvertently deployed without incident. Car was filled with white smoke. Contacted local Ford/Lincoln dealership and was told they had never heard of a vehicle airbag deploying without incident. Contacted Ford/Lincoln corporate office and they offered to pay for the diagnostic at local Ford/Lincoln dealership. Diagnostic revealed no accident data, and a defective clockspring mechanism in the steering wheel....same problem as previous recalls in 2006 Ford F150 and Lincoln mark lt, which obviously share parts with my vehicle. Ford/Lincoln offered to pay for the repairs, less a $200 deductible because, as they stated my vehicle was not covered under the recall even though it's the same problem that other vehicles were recalled for.
