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.

2004 Lincoln Town Car Owner Comments

problem #2

Jun 122006

Town Car 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,027 miles


: the contact stated while applying brake pressure at various speeds, due to the placement of the brake pedal, the accelerator pedal is intermittently pressed as well which causes the vehicle to lurch forward. The vehicle was inspected by a dealer who noted this was a manufacturing design change of the brake and accelerator pedals. The manufacturer was alerted. Updated 06/27/06.

Town Car 8-cyl

The vehicle was in bumper to bumper traffic when all of a sudden it surged forward on its own when the brake was applied. The consumer rear ended another vehicle. The dealer concluded that the brake and accelerator pedal were too close together, so they raised the pedal.
