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.

Grand Marquis 8-cyl

  • 56,100 miles
I was pulling into a parking space and had almost come to a stop when the vehicle suddenly lurched forward & hit a (vacant) store front. I feel the vehicle accel- erated on it's own as I was applying the brake at the time, my foot did not slip off of the brake. The vehicle is equipped with "drive by wire" or, no cable is attached to the throttle body from the accelerator. The dealer repaired the front end of the vehicle and extensively examined the throttle system. No apparent cause was determined and they told us it may never happen again. We have traded the vehicle in since repairs were completed due to lack of confidence in it.

The body side moldings on my vehicle comes loose, and could come off and become airborne, damaging other vehicles. This defect has been noticed on other 2010 Mercury marquis. The dealer has been great, and is ordering a complete set. They cannot tell me if new ones will have the defect or not? I have no complaint with the dealer. I would like to know if Ford has corrected the problem with delamination in the new parts.
