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.

2006 Mercury Mariner Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 012007

Mariner 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Mercury Mariner. The passenger side seat warmer automatically activates as soon as the seat belt is applied. The vehicle has been taken to the dealer twice, and they supposedly repaired the failure the first time. Two days later, the failure recurred. When the vehicle was taken back the second time, the dealer replaced a sensor or something to that nature. The repair temporarily corrected the failure for a few months before it recurred. The vehicle is currently in the contact's possession and has not been repaired. The failure mileage was 15,000 and current mileage was 35,000. Updated 07/29/08 updated 08/01/08.
