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

May 152014


  • 73,800 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Mercury Mountaineer. The contact stated that while traveling 70 mph, the driver's seat moved backward independently as all of the indicator lights illuminated on the instrument panel. The contact inadvertently touched the ignition switch and the seat moved to its normal position. The contact was able to continue driving but the failure recurred. The vehicle was merged to the side of the road and once it was restarted it resumed normal operation. The failure recurred multiple times. The manufacturer was not contacted. The failure mileage was 73,800 and the current mileage 74,900.
