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.

1999 Mercury Sable Owner Comments

problem #1

The problem started in December of 2003, when I went to unlock my front door lock to get in my car after work. I couldn't unlock it! I tried the passenger side and it wouldn't unlock either. Finally after alot of jimmying around on it, I got it open. I had trouble the next day also, and my son-in-law kept working with it and finally got it open.

Now I just never lock it... and I don't have the funds to have it fixed

Has this been a problem with other 1999 Sable owners?
