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

Dec 162004

Town Car 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 63,250 miles


"roaring" noise from the rear end at 30-50 mph. Dealer (metropolitan Lincoln-Mercury in louisville, ky) diagnosed the problem as worn rear axles and axle bearings. Axles, bearings, seals, and brake rotors were replaced at a cost to me of $932. I was told there is a recall to fix this problem because of a early failure in the axle shafts due to an inadequate heat treating, but my vehicle was "not on the list" that qualified. See NHTSA campaign id # 04V328000. If I have the problem that is being fixed by the recall, why isn't my vehicle covered?
