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.

2005 Mercury Grand Marquis Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 262006

Grand Marquis 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,500 miles


: the contact stated while backing out of a parking space at 5 mph, the brake pedal was depressed and the vehicle surged in reverse. The contact shifted into neutral, the engine revved, and the tachometer rose quickly. The vehicle was taken to a service dealer, where the dealer was unable to duplicate or determine the problem. The dealer told the consumer, the incident was due to driver error and when she applied the brake she inadvertently pressed the accelerator as well. Updated 09/11/06.
