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.

2002 Mercury Mountaineer Owner Comments

problem #1

(reported on)

Mountaineer 4.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 52,000 miles

I bought the vehicle at 30,000 miles and am positive that the vehicle was never driven with the emergency break on in the 22,000 miles that I had driven it. I randomly start hearing some noises from the rear. Park one night, come out to the car and try to reverse out of the spot and the rear is locked. The shoes had randomly crumbled and bound the passenger rear wheel
