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.

2005 Lincoln Town Car Owner Comments

problem #1

Town Car 8-cyl

  • 118,735 miles


The drivers inside door handle became unsecured from door panel. Unable to open door from inside vehicle. I took the vehicle to the dealer this morning and was informed the part is not available. There were no options given, except that the part would have to come from a salvage yard. I expressed my concern over the safety of this vehicle, should a collision or fire occur, the occupant would not be able to get out. I took the vehicle to my mechanic, and he is going to secure the handle tomorrow, so I can open the door from the inside.
