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.

2006 Mercury Mountaineer Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 102006


  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,000 miles


The contact rented a 2006 Mercury Mountaineer. While making a left turn at approximately 5-10 mph, the contact applied too much pressure to the accelerator pedal and the vehicle sped forward. The contact applied the brakes and the emergency brake, but the vehicle did not decelerate or stop. The vehicle crashed into four parked vehicles. Both passengers were transported to the hospital, but only the front passenger, who was wearing a seat belt, suffered bruises and soreness. A police report was filed. The vehicle was destroyed and towed. The VIN, powertrain, engine size, purchase date, and number of cylinders were unknown. The current and failure mileages were 6,000.
