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 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,016 miles
When opening trunk it would slam shut. The vehicle is equipped with an automatic trunk closer. When the trunk was opened fully it would suddenly slam very rapidly and with great force. The consumer's wife finger sustained minor injury from the trunk lid motion. The vehicle was taken to the dealer to be repaired. They indicated that the problem was caused by the torque rod in the closure assembly becoming dislodged. The consumer feels that the bracket for the rod should be redesigned.
