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

Jul 202009

Town Car

  • 47,950 miles


The driver side safety belt on my 2002 Lincoln Town car no longer latches and appears to be locked preventing the seat belt from being connected/latched. The dash board seat belt indicator (normally lit up when a seat belt is not attached) does not light up. This problem started only a couple weeks ago and continues. This car have less than 48,000 miles and is used to drive to work and back. Because I am unable to latch my driver seat belt this is a major safety concern and I wanted to report it to your Agency. As of this writing I have not had a Ford service rep look at this, but intend to shortly. Because I have not yet taken my car into a Ford service center for examination I am unable to report what was done to correct this failure or parts needed/replaced.
