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.

The contact drove a 2007 Lincoln Town car, which was a company vehicle. While the vehicle was parked, the contact placed the vehicle into drive. The vehicle traveled four feet and then accelerated. He attempted to steer and apply the brakes, but the vehicle only accelerated more. The vehicle finally stopped after striking two poles and another vehicle. The other vehicle then struck three additional vehicles. The contact's vehicle spun around and was facing the rear of the vehicle that he struck. The instrument panel lights illuminated and a crushing sound was heard. The air bags never deployed until the vehicle stopped. The contact's vehicle and two other vehicles were destroyed. A police report was filed. The contact sustained injuries to his neck, right shoulder, lower back, both wrists, left hand, right pelvis, both knees, and right ankle. He also suffered from dizzy spells, was on medication, lost 40 lbs., and is seeing a psychiatrist. The passenger in the rear seat sustained a bump to her head. The vehicle had been serviced at the dealer two months prior to the crash. Updated 07/22/08 the air bags deployed after the crash and when the vehicle shut off. Updated 07/22/08

Unintended acceleration. It happened about 6 times in 4000 miles. Transmission overhaul one time, next time dealer could not find any thing wrong, however it happened two days later and I will bring it back to dealer for the third time about the same problem. Whoever experiences this difficulty don't accept anyone telling you the accelerator was being pushed or the carpet was sticking. I have driven probably more than a million miles I know unintended acceleration. Period.

The contact owns a 2007 Lincoln Town car. The contact stated that the vehicle accelerated while he was depressing the brake pedal. He was forced to depress the pedal as hard as possible to stop the vehicle. The stopping distance equaled the length of two vehicles. One week later, while pulling into a parking space, the vehicle surged forward again. The contact had to depress the brake pedal as hard as possible to stop the vehicle. The dealer stated that the contact must have had his foot on the accelerator pedal. The contact will take the vehicle to the dealer next week.
