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.

The contact owns a 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis. The contact stated that the brake and accelerator pedals were positioned very close to one another. As a result, the contact experienced a failure in which he depressed both pedals simultaneously. The failure was experienced several times. The vehicle was not taken to a dealer to have the failure diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and offered no assistance. Updated 09/06/2012

Grand Marquis

  • 71,000 miles
On Sept. 27, 2009, I was driving down the highway when I saw what I thought was a leaf on my windshield. I later stopped and noticed that a 5" diameter section on the hood and a 3' by 8-10" section on my roof had peeled off. I went back to the dealership and the body shop foreman admitted it was a factory defect but after talking to Ford was told Ford would not cover it as it was out of warranty. It is a 2005 Mercury marquis and it only has 71000 miles on it.

The paint on my 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis started peeling off in February 2009, first appearing on the roof, then the hood, and around the windows. Dealer states out of warranty, no coverage, but this is clearly a paint defect, as stated by a local body shop. In order to repair, paint has to be grinded down to bare metal as paint primer did not bond with metal properly. Cost to repaint car is estimated at $3,000.

Consumer states the overhead console came down in front of the rear view mirror blocking the top of the mirror. Consumer can N' T see properly out of the mirror. He called Ford and the dealer to ask if he could adjust the rearview mirror somehow in the down position. Both said there was no solution for this. Service dept said there had been several complaints about this same problem.
