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 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Last wed., Nov. 8th., 2006 my Lincoln towncar cartier died. When the tow truck came, he popped open the hood and noticed that a fuse had popped up. He pushed it down and the car strted. That same afternoon, it happened again, and I was able to fix it the same way. I had the car checked for electrical defects, as well as fuse problems and there were none. Lithia in reno said that the terminals were loose under the fuse box, requiring a new one total cost: $1900 I am very distressed about this. This is a luxury car and it shouldn't be happening. I am afraid it will happen again. I feel that it is a manufacturer's defect and they should pay the expense. I have already spent over $100. Of my own money.
