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

  • 35,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Lincoln Town car. While approaching a stop at approximately 12-15 mph, the vehicle accelerated on its own. The failure only occurs when braking and has happened four times since December of 2008. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and they kept if for five days, but they could not duplicate the failure. The vehicle was returned and seemed to be repaired. On June 17, 2009, the failure recurred. The dealer stated that the master cylinder failed or an oil leak was present. They further stated that the failure could not be corrected until it could be duplicated. The vehicle will be taken to the repair shop for diagnostic testing. The failure mileage was 35,000 and current mileage was 37,507.
