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.

Driving home from a shopping and near home we heard two very loud bang noises. The passenger side of the car lowered to the road. I was near my driveway, and I drove it into the yard. There it has sat with one side much lower than the other.

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.

On Friday, October 23, 2015 I backed my car out of the garage on to the driveway. As I hooked my seat belt all the warning lights in dash went off except for the airbag light. About one-half miles later, the beeps started. 5 beeps, then pause. A total of 25 beeps in all. I see from other complaints it does that every 30 minutes. I had only 53,500 miles at the time. It is still like new and should not be having those problems. I see from all the complaints this has been going on since 2004. I would think a company as large as yours would have done something about it before now. I always thought you were 'man enough' to stand by your product. It is a crying shame!!!!! we need a recall on this. You are putting people's lives in danger!!!!! please reconsider and take care of your customers.

Every time I drive my car my airbag light comes on and it chimes 5 times repeats a couple of times then shuts off. After doing online research, looks like this is a common/costly problem for the 06. Every half hour it beeps again 5 times repeats a couple of times then shuts off. Ford should issue a recall!

While driving to work the airbag light came on and started chiming. I looked the problem up on line and found this is a common issue with Lincoln. They stated the problem is in the connection and the repair by Lincoln cost $700. Many stated after fixing the driver side the passenger side failed soon after. Decided to not take it in for repair due to cost and chance of another failure.

Within a mile of leaving home, the seat belt light came on & started beeping. Driver glanced down to check seatbelt only to find that it was coming unlatched. In the brief seconds that it took to glance down & back up, driver was already leaving the road and in a panic, accidentally hit gas instead of brake. Car was totalled. The only airbag that deployed was the steering wheel. Driver sustained serious trauma injuries to head, ribs, pelvis, femur as well as extensive hematomas. Driver is also suffering from stress related to accident. Driver is now recovering with the aid of physical therapy and other devices for mobility (walker, wheelchair, cane, etc.). driver is son of owner of vehicle.

Light for seat belt came on and there was a beeping song, took to dealership, said that was a shortage and the pre-tensioners seat belt retractor had to be replace, if not replace if I got into an accident the airbag would not deploy. Paid $719 to have replace. Fast forward to today Oct. 22, 2014. Same thing happen again took it to dealer said that this time it is the driver side that needs to be replaced. Spoke with some other Lincoln owner of 2006 Lincoln, it seems as though quite a few people are having the same problem.

The air bag warning light came on and the alarm to get your attention sounded. This alarm occurs often and is disconcerting. I talked with the service manager at the local dealership concerning this problem and asked on two occasions for a free diagnosis of the reason of the airbag light warning and alarm but was turned down. I do not drive the car often as I am not sure if the air bags will deploy in the event of an accident.
