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.

Dealership failed to provide prompt repair of a fire hazard recall. I made an appointment as the recall requested for the speed control fire hazard, the dealership put at least four other vehicles ahead of mine and this is a small dealership. This was a work day for me, hence the appointment, and a repair that would take less than 15 minutes was looking to take a couple of hours. Obviously the dealership makes more income from regular repair jobs, but this is a Lincoln problem that should have been handled on a priority basis since is presents a fire hazard. I have done my part, I cannot afford to take off 2 or 3 hours because the recall repair is not a money maker for the dealership.
