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 042006

Town Car 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,571 miles


: the contact stated while driving 30 mph on a city street, smoke erupted from all of the air vents on the dash, and from underneath the hood. There were no visible flames present. The contact turned the engine off, which stopped the smoke. Afterwards, as soon as the engine was restarted, smoke was again present. The vehicle was towed to a dealer, who determined the windshield wiper motor shorted out and needed to be replaced. There was a NHTSA recall, # 01V258000, regarding the windshield wiper/washer motor. The vehicle was not included in the recall due to the VIN. The manufacturer was alerted.
