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.

2003 Mercury Grand Marquis Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 042006

Grand Marquis 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,300 miles


: the contact stated the splash guard panel underneath the vehicle that protects the radiator, power steering, and vacuum hoses, is very low to the ground and can be struck by objects in the roadway. Although a failure did not occur, the vehicle was seen by a dealer for inspection. The dealer was unable to duplicate the problem.. splash guard always made contact with the bumper stop on parking lot, when a car pulled out the splashing guard made contact with it, making a terrible noise, the panel became more warped each time that it happened. Because it covered vital engine and steering parts, this panel should be straight and more secure.
