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.

2002 Lincoln Town Car Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 012002

Town Car 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


Purchased new 2002 Lincoln towncar April 2002 from central Florida Lincoln Mercury in orlando Florida. Car is garaged all the time and now has 3000 miles on it. The chassis and various steel support and steering parts have severe and I mean severe rust. The dealer says it is more than they have seen but there is no problem. I have never seen rust as bad as this and I have seen a lot of cars in my life time as a mechanic. The rust looks like the car was in road salt for many years even though the car has not and only 8 months old.
