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.

Town Car

My car had 94,106 miles then the repair was made. The front end was handling poorly and I knew the coil over strut assembly would need replacing. When my mechanic performed the work they called and asked me if I tried to work on the front suspension of my car and I told them 'no', as I have no tools or experience to do such work. I asked why they wanted to know and the mechanic informed that my upper ball joints were fractured and cross threaded. I wanted to know how it could happen and they could not give me answer (they speculate this was a factory assembly mistake) as the coil over strut should not be cross threaded, that is why they wanted to know if I did something to the car. Lincoln Town cars with the coil over strut front suspension are bad for falling apart and this applies to the upper and lower ball joints. I have several friends with this same car and they have reported fractured upper and lower ball joints. This seems to be a common occurrence due poor design of the front suspension. I feel a recall needs to happen as you can be driving your car and the front end will fall out. I am fortunate as I had enough sense to know my car was not handling properly and immediately took it in for service, a lot of people have not been as fortunate. I am attaching the repair bill to this file but my personnel information is hidden. I am maintaining the repair invoice in my personnel car file if you should need it. A recall needs to be done and Ford Motor Company should re-design the upper and lower ball joint assembly to handle the heavy weight of these cars and reimburse owners for repairs already made. I do not tear up my car and this issue should not have ever happened.
