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.

I was driving about 35 mph when all of a sudden a warning for power advance flashed on the car. It got hard to steer so I took it to the dealership the same day at 99,000 miles. They said that a new steering gear is needed and that it is not covered under warranty, the cost would be around $1500 they told me. There was a recall for steering in June of 2015 ive had this vehicle since March of 2015, my car wasnt under recall which it needs to be cause there are other Milan with the same issue. Ford's number for this recall is 15S18.

I lost the ability to steer on the interstate with no warning. The steering became difficult, so I took vehicle to Ford dealer ship. At 77,000 miles, the warning for power advance flashed on the car. The dealership says that I need a new steering gear is needed and that it is not covered under warranty. The repair is estimated at $1767. This needs to have a recall, since this is happening with other Mercury owners.

2011 Mercury Milan my wife was going to the mall with 3 year old in back seat stopped to turn into mall parking lot began her turn across trafic and electric power assist steering went out and into manual mode. This made the steering become very hard to turn. Because of this my wife was almost hit by a truck. Thank god the driver of truck was able to stop before hitting my wifes vehicle. My wife is 120. Lbs there is no way she can steer this vehicle in manual mode. The nice driver of the truck helped my wife by driving the vehicle into parking lot and parking it. She was shook up but not injured. I understand there was a recall on some of the 2011 Milan but my wifes car is not in this recall. I dont understand if a part is bad why are some coved for the problem and not others. I have appointment tomorrow morning at local Ford dealership was told will cost me $400 -$500 to fix.

Traveling on highway at 55 mph "power steering now" light chime on and I started exiting at the nearest exit as I was approaching the exit I reduced my speed to 30 mph and I noticed the steering was getting stiff. I was in panic mode because cars were approaching the exit and I wasn't able to steer. I coast to a parking lot and had my vehicle towed.I have no trust in that car. First throttle body almost was rear ended. Now this. No prior warning. Service now and it stop on you awhile you driving.

Milan

  • 35,000 miles
When I started the car, the power steering would not work, after a few seconds I turned the engine off and restarted it, then it worked just fine. The local Ford dealer told me there was nothing they could do if it as long as it was working properly at the time I reported it to them. I can see this could be a real problem if it occurs while the vehicle is in motion. Since this happened approx. A year ago, the date and mileage are estimates.
