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.

Town Car LX V6

There was a recall that had something to do with the cruise control so it had to be disconnected. When the recalled item was replaced, the cruise control no longer worked. I spent approx 750.00 after they (Bill Collins Ford) assured me it had nothing to do with the recalled item, to get it fixed. They would replace an item which did not fix the cruise control, then tell me it was something else. This continued until I had about 750.00 into it. The final straw came when they told me the next item to replace was approx a 500.00 item. That is when I told them to shove it where the sun doesn't shine. I even sent a letter to Corporate who did not have the decency to respond.
