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.

This is actually worrying me since I cannot drive it further from the place where technicians are available. And the cost, as mentioned by the technician, cannot be afforded by a person with meager income like me. I do hope that Ford can give free service to solve this common problem of Mercury Mountaineer/Ford Explorer.

My vehicle O/D light constantly blinks and its shifting hard. The gears appear to be slipping! Slow to pick up speed!

The first problem came in 10000 miles, the transmission was rebuilt under warranty now at 120k I am told that the servo bore needs to be replace (fixed) as well. $16000-24,000. I am looking for victims willing to initiate a class action suit.

Mountaineer 4.6V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 84,000 miles

this mercury mountaineer was the car we researched and found the exact color and interior, we had a dealer who was not that honest when it came to dates of warranties and the 1.9 percent rate was I point higher the should have been. the lift gate cracked from the logo , I was told that the suv would be under purchased until the last payment , no true at all, I noticed that there was body work done to the front end of this certified used suv and the woman who had this was a manager at the dealership, the radio stopped working in the drivers door and I took it to the dealer down the road , was told I needed a new unit as its all one piece. 89 dollars and I found out it was a wire in the door harness . never returned my money or shipped me the part, I then had the back lift gate brake off while unloading grocery , The hinge snapped I was left holding the window. and the paint is chipping along the roof. this is a not so nice purchase, worst ever, most cash ever spent on the piece of sh*t that now needs a new transmission
