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. The consumer stated the vehicle was leaking gear oil on the rear axle. The consumer noticed it when the oil formed on the ground of his garage. The dealership did a diagnostic, and found a recall. However, this vehicle was not part of the recall due to VIN. The dealership replaced part 3W1Z-aa10A-aa, the complete kit, two rear axles, two bearings, two seals, and the oil. This was the kit the recall called for. The problem did not cause any accidents of injuries. The consumer did call Lincoln, but they also said there was nothing they could do. This happened on the driver's side, but both sides were replaced. The consumer kept the parts.
