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.

2001 Lincoln Town Car Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 012007

Town Car

  • 70,000 miles


The contact owns a 2001 Lincoln Town car executive. The contact stated that the drivers side door handle does not return to its fully closed position and would not remain closed, causing the door to open while the vehicle was in motion. The failure was similar to NHTSA campaign id number 08V058000 (latches/ locks/ linkages doors, latch). The manufacturer was aware of the failure; however they informed the contact that her model was not involved in the previous recall and to take the vehicle to a local dealer for diagnostic testing. The vehicle was not repaired nor was a diagnostic test done due to the cost. The current mileages were approximately 84,000 and the failure mileages were approximately 70,000.
