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.

Brake and accelerator are too close together and too often, when pressing on the brake pedal, the accelerator is pressed as well causing the vehicle to advance (either forward or in reverse). I brought it to the dealer (malouf) and was told they found no defect and there were no recalls or safety bulletins and there was nothing to do. I see, from reading the N.H.T.S.a. reports that this is one of the most common complaints and the safety board should force Ford/Lincoln to install some devise that prevents engaging both the brake and the accelerator at the same time.

The gas pedal is located too close to the brake pedal. It is very easy to press on both pedals at the same time. This has happened to me 4 times in the six months I have been driving this car. The problem is alleviated somewhat by positioning the adjustable brake pedal at the most extended extreme, but it is still far too easy to depress both pedals simultaneously.

I have a 2006 Lincoln Town car. It has a driver adjustment on the height of the brake pedal. Even with it at the top, when you apply the brakes, the accelerator is so close that you can push it also. This is very dangerous. Several times now, I have avoided an accident only because an oncoming driver missed me. Coming up to a stop sign, I've applied the brakes only to have the car jump forward into traffic.

: the contact stated, the instrument panel does not have enough illumination to clearly see the readings in daylight hours. The lack of illumination in the instrument panel defers concentration from the road, when viewing displayed information. The dealer was informed of the problem who determined the only solution was to turn up the brightness on the instrument panel to full, which had already done. The dealer offered no other solution.
