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

Mariner SUV

I was driving through town today, and the Overdrive-off light stayed on. I looked in my car manual, and it said that when I turn the ignition off, this would go away. So, I turned it off several times while driving around town. Each time it would come back on when I started driving again. Also it will not shift into a higher gear, and it started using a lot of gasoline. Also the transmission is slipping. This is very frustrating for me. I have rheumatoid arthritis, and all these problems makes me hurt much more. I called the dealer and I have an appt. for tomorrow.

Mariner Luxury V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 46,000 miles

My 2006 Mercury Mariner has 46,000 miles on it and was slipping into gears. I called Ford and of course the warranty had expired and I asked about an extended warranty on the powertrain and was told that that kind of warranty didn't start until the 2007 model year...or course. I took it to my mechanic and the truck need a new transmission. He said that when he took the transmission pan off there were pieces of the transmission in it. There was a defective spring on the transmission that caused the clutches to slip and was no fault of the owner. Therefore, I had to pay $2035 to replace the transmission and I still have 3 more years of making payments on this piece of junk.
