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 #2

  • miles


2 years ago I purchased 4 Michelin latitude tires (65,000 mile tires) for my 2006 Mercury Montego. On Wednesday (9-25-13) I went to the dealer (discount tires) for a tire rotation. I was told the rotation could not be done because the tires were unsafe. The dealers description was a cracking issue. What really has happened is the rubber thread is coming off the core of all 4 tires (24,000 miles). Because of this unsafe condition, I purchased 4 new tires and the dealer adjusted the price based on thread wear. As a consumer I should not have to pay for an unsafe manufacturing defect. I noticed that Michelin has previously recalled the latitude tires for SUV's and small trucks. I think this should be recalled for passenger cars since this is an unsafe situation and has occurred on all 4 of my tires.

Montego 6-cyl

  • 1,100 miles
Loud clunking from rear suspension, replaced rear shock and tightened torsion bars etc. Noise was reduced but never fully corrected. Consequently my car is out of alignment and ruined all 4 tires in just 32,000 miles. Service center is refusing to fix under warranty. They have stated that the tires cupping on the inside has been an issue on these vehicles so is there more wrong here than they are saying. I have my car serviced there every 3,000 miles and tires rotated every 6,000 miles. I pay them to take care of my car, if I would not have noticed my tires being cupped they would have never said anything.
