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.

1998 Lincoln Town Car Owner Comments

(reported on)

Town Car

  • 91,000 miles


When I hit a bump I hear a clacking noise and when I hit a bump and apply the brake the sound doesn't do it. I have 2000 brakes on my 98 town car because the 98 brakes wouldn't fit for whatever reason. It started when I had a driver side caliper put on, I don't know if that's it or not. Do I also need 2000 calipers. Like I said it doesn't make the clacking sound when I go over a bump with my foot on the brake. I know that it's coming from the brake area, it's nothing else, I had my front end checked three times. It's really annoying.
