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 Monterey Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 102008


  • 8,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Mercury Monterey. While driving low speeds, the vehicle would decelerate and shut off. The contact had to restart the vehicle from the middle of the road. Once restarted, the vehicle functions properly. When the failure occurs, the advance track ABS light illuminates. She took the vehicle to the dealer, but they could not duplicate the failure. Ford sent an engineer to the dealer and he retro fitted something to the steering wheel to block light from affecting the sensors. The remedy has not corrected the failure. The failure has occurred five times and the vehicle has been taken to the dealer four times. The vehicle has not been repaired. The failure mileage was 8,000 and current mileage was 10,300.
