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.

2008 Mercury Milan Owner Comments

problem #1

May 262013

Milan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


The contact owns a 2008 Mercury Milan. The contact stated that while traveling approximately 5 mph, the contact attempted to decelerate and the pedal went to the floor. The contact then crashed into another vehicle. There were no injuries. The contact also mentioned that he erroneously depressed the accelerator because it was too close to the brake pedal. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was recommended that the brakes and rotors be replaced. The vehicle was repaired but the failure recurred. The manufacturer was contacted about the failure. The consumer stated his foot would accidentally hit the accelerator pedal, if he foot was not completely on the brake pedal, which caused the vehicle to surge. Both incidents, resulted in an accident.
