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.

problem #2

Town Car Executive 4.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 140,476 miles


Ford Motor Company needs to address this problem. It covers now several engines and a long history greater than 10 years. It is highly problem matic with engines above the 100,000 mile point. If is clearly evident a material interface problem or improper bore dimensions. Ford needs to either compensate buyers or provie service reimbursement.

Town Car Executive Series 4.6L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 126,000 miles

Spark plug blew out of head and caught fire. Ford is aware of the problems with this particular engine (4.6 V-8) but refuse to do anything about it. In my online research, I have found many people who have had the same problem. I will NEVER buy another Ford product not will I ever recommend Ford to anyone else!
