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.

2005 Mercury Montego Owner Comments

My new Mercury montage sedan is equipped with oversized side mirrors-aps 2 higher and 3 longer than the average size on comparable vehicles. This is a serious problem as it blocks out the entire size of a vehicle when going through intersections, narrow streets, alleys, and parking lots. Also, cannot see pedestrians, wheel chairs, etc.,that may be waiting in the gutter. When turning, the larger size mirror reflects cars that are behind you, yet appear to be coming from the side. In evening hours, the larger size reflects the headlights of vehicles, particularly SUV's, and is blinding. I commute 400 miles/week, and fear that this is a potential safety hazard that needs to be addressed and corrected. My Mercury dealer said nothing can be done. That is irresponsible! sine this form doesn't allow for multiple incidents, I have entered the most recent one.
