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 #1

Sep 132011

Mountaineer Premere V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 99,000 miles


This problem was prior to my Transmission problem and also was an inconvenience because the start of this issue happened on the way with my family to vacation. All the fluid in front diff. heated up and blew out on way to vacation and I had to stop at garage and delay our trip by about 6 hours while a mechanic put a new gasket on front diff. and filled with fluid to get me there and back and then it happened again. This cost me another 400.00 so now a 61/2old year vehicle and about $4,000 dollar spent in a month and this is where I am. Ford stinks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
