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.

The contact states that the 1998 Lincoln Town car leaks water into the windshield when it is raining. The windshield wipers malfunctioned. The contact has not taken the vehicle to the dealer to have it fixed. This problem only happens when the car is parked, not when he is driving. If the car is parked up hill it is worse than when parked on a flat surface, down hill.
