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.

2010 Mercury Mariner Owner Comments

problem #2

Mariner 4-cyl

  • 60,000 miles


Air bag light came on at erratic times. Took it to Ford dealer, it turns out the internal fault with restraint control module. This repair will cost almost $900 to repair a safety item that is not a worn part but a electrical module that deploys the airbag. I find it difficult to believe that such an item is the owners responsibility. If it is an item that wears, yes, mechanical, yes but this is a module that is designed for the emergency deployment of the safety airbags and Ford holds no responsibility for the failure. Mileage and age should not come into play on this issue. I pray my family remains safe, I cannot afford this cost.
