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

Mar 142008

Town Car 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles


The contact owns a 2001 Lincoln Town car. While driving approximately 40 mph, the vehicle began vibrating. The tire dealer stated that the bushings have come off of the front lower ball joints near the front driver side tire. The failure is related to recall #00D159; however, the dealer confirmed that the VIN is not related. The ball joint fractures increase risk of crash. The bolt was tightened and the mechanic advised him to have the dealer diagnose and repair it. The current and approximate failure mileages were 85000.
