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.

2003 Mercury Marauder Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 092003

Marauder 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,182 miles


Insufficient front end alignment procedures to accommodate lack of appropriate alignment equipment necessary to handle the 2003 Mercury Marauder wheels. As such, I did not find out my alignment was out on my new Marauder until the tires had worn off the inside corner tread and was noticed by the Mercury technician. I had to purchase a new set of tires at 13,182 miles and then locate a non-Mercury dealer who had the clips necessary to attach to the Marauder wheels to accommodate alignment. Owners should be aware to check alignment proactively on their vehicles if not proactively checked or requested to be checked by their dealer service groups.
