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.

Seatbelt / airbag warning light indicator is warning about either faulty sensor or faulty belt tensioner. Began while in parked poison and continues periodically when in motion, regardless of speed. Cost to repair is exorbitant, nearly half the value of the car and is not guaranteed to work is last. The airbags will likely not worth in the event of accident but no way to tell unless there is an accident. Serious fault regarding required safety equipment with this make/model year. Mileage is 170,100. Also, the passenger side floorboard, especial in backseat become saturated when it rains. Floor plugs are intact, the water is entering from poor design feature where the windshield/engine meet and supposedly slow for water to be channeled away from engine to ground but is actually channelling along the side into the passenger cabin footwell. Again, this design flaw is a known issue from manufacturer. This is a health and safety issue, especially in warm climates due to mold growing as a result of water pooling in cabin. As this car was garaged kept and not used often until the past 6 months, the water issue wasnt known until first rain this spring, 2016. Car was in open air, uncovered driveway and not in use for 2 weeks after said rain. When owner opened car door, she was hit with overwhelming stench of mold. She located the source and water had visibly saturated floor, rug and padding underneath. Black and green mold had grown extensively in backseat passenger floorboard and under front passenger seat.

As part of the recent Ford steering recall, an emergency inspection was done on 11/18/13 at 69,104 and declared safe to drive. On 3/18/14 driving to the dealer to have recall work performed, the steering column locked-up solid at the turn was made entering the dealers property.a repair was done replacing the lower shaft only as shown in picture #1. then less than 14 months later a repeat failure of the upper shaft assembly shown in picture #2. there was no secondary recall issued, so a search by VIN showed no outstanding recall, and the dealers insistent ed this was not a recall issue, but. It was, as the complete upper and lower shaft should have been replaced during the repair. The unpredictable locking of the steering wheel poses a serious injury/death risk. All vehicles part of the initial recall should be inspected to insure the repair was don completely and correctly. Pictures available on request (can't seem to attach N this form) also see previous for filed when first failure occurred despite inspection that declared vehicle safe to drive.

My 2006 Lincoln Town car brake pedal depresses below the level of the accelerator a significant amount. The Ford/Lincoln dealer reports that it is operating normally, with no fix available. Foot pressure must be applied with no accelerator overlap, otherwise the car surges, the engine revs & tires spin resulting in a longer, stopping distance. This is ongoing since new. No accidents yet.
