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

  • 21,507 miles


2008 Lincoln Town car, purchased on 5/18/10 at cortese Lincoln, rochester NY. 6/1/10: Began experiencing trouble stopping - intermittent 7/2/10: Trip from rochester, NY to vermilion, oh; traveling I90 West, could not stop the car when approaching the toll booth in buffalo, NY. Stopped at the last second inches away from the car ahead. Pushed the pedal to the floor and put the car in neutral. I pulled over and checked the brake fluid; it was fine. On route 2 West, stopped at mcdonalds. The same thing happened as just described. Arrived at vermilion at 4 P.M., took the car to Liberty Ford-Lincoln. They could not explain problem. Returned to rochester, NY on July 5, 2010 and used emergency flashers the entire way. Arrived safely home. On July 6, 2010, took the car to cortese Lincoln, rochester, NY for further evaluation. They could not find anything. I told them to contact the Ford Lincoln tech hotline department. They did. Recommendation: Bleed brakes and test drive. Cortese technician: 9021 Warren R halter. I am afraid to drive this car.

- Rochester, NY, USA
