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.

problem #2

Mountaineer AWD 5.0L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 133,900 miles


I was driving normally down a normal city street, about a week after we purchased this truck, when I casually looked into my tachometer to see how many revs i was doing at city driving, and it was up at 4,500rpm's. Keeping in mind my foot was off the throttle and I was coasting at about 55km/h. I kinda did a double look at it until i figured something was wrong with it. Thinking like a typical male, I decided to give it a smack and see if it would come back into position, and it did. It randomly does that maybe once every 2 weeks, and it doesn't make any sense why it would.

The LED display would not stay illuminated. When it was illuminated, it was so dim that it was hard to read.
