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.

2008 Mercury Mountaineer Owner Comments

problem #1

My Ford Mountaineer 2008 transmission is erratic and the traction control light comes on when the slipping is taking place. Braking is also erratic as I feel a bumping while braking to a stop. It is very dangerous as it feels like to transmission and brake/traction control system is about to go. I called Ford and they have know of the problem since 2006 as the transmission used (6R60) continually needs software updates. According to the dealer, most all of these vehicles with this transmission eventually have the problem but very rarely with the base warranty period, so now all of us have to pay but Ford has know of the problem even B/4 my vehicle was manufactured.........what do I do, Ford is not recalling for this a shifting the risk of the accident and repair to the consumer. Please help and let me know what my next step might be....thank you
