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.

Grand Marquis

My 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis has had an issue with the lighting module for the headlights. The headlights will not turn on anymore and from what I see from others complaints about this model is that the majority of the complaints with this vehicle are with the same issue! I really hope that this issue becomes a recall since obviously they are aware of how many people are having this problem. Do you know how hard it is not to be able to drive at night"! let alone when it's rainy or foggy out. I have young children what if theres an emergency?? this issue needs to be addressed before more people get into an accident! are they waiting for someone to die first!" another issue I have is with the windshield wipers- they only have one speed- fast. I don't know why they wouldn't make them with slower settings, every time it rains lightly I have to turn them on for a second and off repeatedly because there aren't any slower settings. I like the comfort of my Grand Marquis but these issues really need to get resolved or I'll be forced to by another vehicle and if they don't do a recall on the exterior lights I will never buy another vehicle from Ford Motor Company because it will show that they really don't care about people's safety!
