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

May 162007

Mountaineer LL 4.6L Efi V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 86,000 miles


I've had to replace 3 of 4 window actuators. 1st was the front passenger, then 1 - 1-1/2 yrs later the rear driver side and at approx 115K miles the front driver's side!! had to be replaced. Each time I could hear a 'cable' breaking sound. I could manipulate the window up and down so not toooooooo bad. But the driver's window was a real pain in the butt at the bank, the drive-thru pharmacy and the dry cleaners. Uggghhh!!!

Update from Oct 2, 2012: Only the 1st time was covered under warranty... The 2nd and 3rd cost me $225 each to repair!
