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.

2003 Lincoln Town Car Owner Comments

problem #1

Town Car 4.6L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 101,000 miles


Brakes started squeaking shortly after inheriting the car after step dad's death. Had car inspected, new tires installed, oil change... Took car to mechanic and they took the wheels off, and detected a crazing/hairline crackling throughout. They determined that there was "plenty of meat left on my brakes" but if they got overheated or I braked severely on a long car ride, the crackling could cause crumbling and could potentially be dangerous. They said my rotors were fine. So, I got top of the line brakes, and replaced them. Still squeaking, and getting more annoying. Also, getting a burning smell and bucking. Not sure if related.
