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.

  • 65,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Mercury Mountaineer. He has experienced several failures with the vehicle. In an attempt to diagnose the failure the vehicle was taken to several different repair centers, to no avail. When contacting his local dealer the contact was advised that the vehicle would need several repairs including a failed radiator, thermostat, water pump, brake drums, rotors and a grease treatment, all at his own expense. The manufacturer was contacted and would not offer any assistance. The failure mileage was approximately 65,000 and the current mileage was 107,253.
