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.

1998 Mercury Grand Marquis Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 022007

(reported on)

Grand Marquis LS 4.6L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


The car sounds like a tank rolling along except this is like it has a cat screeching under the hood.

Apparently the engineers and powers that are at Ford decided to run front end joints with plastic or other materials instead of grease or lube points. Dumb idea on a car used in taxis and police fleets where they run for hundreds of thousands of miles. It sure brings in a steady stream of income. I will find out tomorrow what my contribution to this fund will cost.

Another common engineering problem on this otherwise great workhorse of a car.
