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.

2002 Mercury Grand Marquis Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 312005

Grand Marquis 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles


Without any forewarning, vehicle stalled on major highway. Unable to start. A passing motorist said he had same problem and restarted by pushing reset button in trunk. We did and vehicle started. Could have been disastrous if happened on interstate with 18 wheeler behind. Took vehicle to dealer. Mechanic said inertia switch defective and changed. Said the reset button is safety factor to avoid fire in case of collision. But there was no collision--not even bump in road. Believe there should be warning system when reset becomes defective.
