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

Jan 272008

Navigator 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,575 miles


2006 Lincoln Navigator owned or leased by my daughter/son in law almost lost left rear wheel on January 27, 2008. Upon inspection, left rear wheel was found to be loose. When hub cap was removed it was discovered that two of the threaded wheel lugs had broken off with the lug nuts still on the broken part of the studs. The other four lug nuts where loose. This vehicle was carrying three baby girls (triplets) and their mother and father when this incident occurred. The vehicle was within a minute or so of loosing the wheel. With potentially disastrous results. The wheel studs should never have separated even if they were overtightened. The threads should have stripped first. Wheel studs may have been defective and this should be investigated. Vehicle was returned to dealership for repair.
