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.

2007 Mercury Mountaineer Owner Comments

problem #2

Mountaineer 8-cyl

  • 80,600 miles


Exact same as NHTSA id # 10654146. The "easy exit" feature activated at 65 mph in freeway traffic. I am 6' tall and was able to slide seat forward, but my wife is 5' tall and may have had issues reaching the pedals... this has since happened on 3 other occasions ( 2 at freeway speed, and once pulling into our driveway). I will contact dealer, but wanted search recalls first.

problem #1

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
While driving on freeway over a small crack, dashboard reported that rear driver side door became loose, had to pull over and re-close the door. I drive this route/lane everyday to work, it hasn' T happen for six months (that's when I bought my Mountaineer). Don't know if this is a random event or due to some design problem. It can be scary, what if the door became wide open while driving! remember the door is closed before it became loose.
