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.

2008 Lincoln Town Car Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 172011

Town Car 8-cyl

  • 23,000 miles


In 2008, I purchased a new Lincoln Town car. The tires on the car are Michelin energy LX4 xse radials. The dot number is M3xhdeh3X0208. Tread wear is shown as 500. Tire size is P225/60R17. My complaint is that all 4 tires show sidewall cracking. The car has 23,000 miles on it. Tread wear looks to be about half of new. The sidewall cracking is extensive, and I believe extremely dangerous, especially in West central Florida, where I live, because of the high ambient daytime temperatures. I have googled the tire ¿Michelin energy LX4¿ and have found that there are many consumer same model Michelin tire complaints for side wall cracking. Dealers representing the Michelin brand, upon inspecting the problematic tires have determined the problem due to ¿tire rot.¿ I believe wholeheartedly that this issue demands immediate investigation, before someone gets killed, due to a sidewall blowout.
