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.

My 2003 Mercury Marauder suffered premature wear on the inner edges of the front wheels. It was found to be within specification for the camber alignment while this wear is indicative of a camber issue. I replaced the front tires and had an alignment. 12,000 miles later the new set of tires is exhibiting excessive wear on the front inner edges. Doing further research, I have found this is a problem caused by the loose tolerance of Mercury's alignment specification. Many other Marauder owners are experiencing the exact same problem. The poses a significant blowout problem and needs to addressed by the manufacturer.

Marauder 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 500 miles
This vehicle purchased in June 2003 has had 6 alignments (the first at about 500 miles) and the steering rack replaced all before 3100 miles because of a constant pull to the right. The dealer has informed me that I am no longer entitled to a "courtesy" alignment. Rf toe in has drifted.8 degrees in 1 week's time and lf camber 1.3 in same time. Will be entering lemon law proceedings. Additionally the fit and finish has left much to be desired, have had rear "package" carrier, fr head light, window moldings, airbag covers and other trim items replaced.
