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.

Reference complaints 10327169, and 10326349. Lincoln 2007 Town car why are these reports included in "interior systems"? they are clearly a safety issue that should be included under brakes and fuel system!! this model has the brake pedal and the fuel pedal connected together in a system that can raise or lower them together...it is probably this system that is at fault. In order to put in this feature it appears that they moved the gas pedal closer to the brake pedal and it is possible to apply both pedals together.

Component: Vehicle speed control details: TL contact owns a 2007 Lincoln Town car. The contact stated that the gas pedal and brakes were too close together. The contact observed that they were too close when the vehicle was purchased; I notify the dealer, reedman-toll, langhorne, pa approximately 6 months after purchase and was told that there was no recall on this condition. My husband, julius hyman, the primary driver, has experienced this unattended acceleration approximately 6 times and fortunately he was able to remove the foot from the accelerator allowing the brake to function before an accident occurred.or the manufacturer..

I purchased the 2007 towncar on 6/24/08, with 14,500 miles. The problem occurs when my shoe is half on the brake and the pedal will go down to where the gas pedal is. This has happened 6 or 7 time already, the harder you press the brake the faster you go. Why does the brake pedal go down this far? my wife gets all shook up when this happens. I put the car in neutral and the car stops on a dime with the motor racing this looks like a design problem, why would you raise the brake and gas pedal at the same time, it would be better if you could raise or lower them one at a time. I have been driving for 50 years or more and never had this problem before. The last time this occurred was 8/28/08.

Over the year and half we have owned the car, the brakes have failed and bringing the car to a stop is very difficult. After a lengthy battle we the dealership and also Ford, they stand by the fact that nothing is wrong. They had the car almost 3 months and they could not duplicate the problem, so there is no problem, according to them.
