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

Too many times to count 25 30 even more. When driving my 2005 Mercury Montego the complete dash cluster lost all functions and read outs, always at speeds above 30mph. A few times 9 or so the car would buck a few times. I had the harness connector checked and no problems found. This condition prevents me from using the vehicle as needed, to driver a few times a year from Connecticut to North Carolina and back to visit ailing family members. No other reasonable transportation available. We will pro ally never buy a Ford product again due to safety concerns. Need advice as to problem and how to fix.
