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.

Town Car

  • miles


The contact owns a 2003 Lincoln Town car. The contact stated that there were strong fumes of fuel emitting inside and outside the vehicle. Also, the vehicle failed to start occasionally. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who incorrectly replaced the fuel filter and did not secure the ring or cap, which caused a failure rather than a permanent remedy. The contact was traveling to another state and noticed a fuel leak. The vehicle would not start and was towed to a dealer. The technician diagnosed that the repair was not correctly completed by the dealer. The vehicle was to be further inspected and diagnosed to determine what parts needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was not available.
