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.

2007 Mercury Monterey Owner Comments

problem #1

Monterey 6-cyl

  • 86,000 miles


While I was driving, the 2007 Monterey mini-van suddenly stopped responding to the accelerator. The brakes were still responsive, as was steering. There was absolutely no warning to this abrupt problem, and it was particularly worrisome because there were vehicles following me on the 4-lane road and I was unexpectedly not moving besides coasting to a stop. The vehicle had to be towed. Our mechanic, not a dealer, suspects the torque converter. Of note, the 2004 and 2005 Montereys were recalled for torque converter failure because it was a safety issue. The only other years of Montereys that were made, 2006 and 2007, should be investigated for recall, also. This type of failure- while the vehicle is in motion- is exceedingly dangerous.
