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.

2004 Mercury Grand Marquis Owner Comments

problem #1

May 112004

Grand Marquis 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,900 miles


The steering wheel vibrates when driving at speeds of 58 mph and faster. The dealership has serviced the vehicle 5 times, in which they balanced the tires, rotate the tires and made an adjustment in the steering column. The problem still exist. The dealership also indicated that the steering wheel meets factory specifications and the shake is minimum. The dealer rotated and balanced the system but the shaking persisted. When the vehicle tires and wheels were replaced with cast aluminum the shaking was no longer felt. The consumer feels that the previous set of tires and wheels were defective.
