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.

2006 Mercury Montego Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 108,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Mercury Montego. While driving approximately 45 mph, the rear passenger side control mounting bracket fractured, detaching part of the frame and making it difficult to control the vehicle. The failure also caused damage to the rear passenger tire. The contact gained control of the steering and was able to stop the vehicle. The vehicle was then towed to an independent mechanic. The mechanic advised that the rear passenger side control mounting bracket and part of the frame was corroded and fractured. The mechanic advised that because of liability issues, they were unable to repair the vehicle. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and a complaint was filed. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 108,000.
