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.

While leaving my home I noticed the amber airbag lamp on the dashboard had remained illuminated; the warning chime also sounded periodically. Upon taking the vehicle to a dealership that day I was told the driver's side seatbelt and buckle had to be replaced, and that the airbag would not deploy until the necessary repairs were made. Since that time I have driven without having the repair done because of the cost (approximately $800). I have done considerable research on the internet about this problem and found numerous instances of this problem occurring on the Mercury product line, primarily from repair forums, advice websites, etc. My search was by no means all inclusive, but I feel it representative of a systemic problem with, at least, the Mercury product line, and may extend to other Ford products. It certainly represents a serious safety issue concerning the use of airbags for passengers and driver. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

I was driving along and the dashboard "front airbag light" came on and a beeping sound began. Since my vehicle is a Mercury and there are no Mercury dealers now, I called the nearest Ford dealership. They say that when the light is flashing it means my airbag is not working. If I bring the vehicle in, they will diagnose it for $49 and then tell me how much it will cost to fix it. They said there is no recall on this issue. I checked the internet and found several automotive forums that discuss this issue. Apparently it has been a topic of discussion since at least 2008. I'm concerned for my safety and will make arrangements to have the situation accessed and then fixed. However in today's economy, many people will just let the light continue to be lit and do nothing. This means that their airbags will be inoperable. I think either NHTSA or Ford should consider a recall on this.
