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.

2001 Mercury Sable Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 022005

Sable 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 64,492 miles


I own a 2001 Mercury Sable. In August of 2003 the car would not start and was towed to the dealer. It had 23038 miles. The fuel pump was replaced with no charge to me due to the manufacturers warranty. On October 3, 2005, my Mercury Sable would not start. Again it was towed with only 64492 miles. Once again the dealer informed me that the fuel pump was bad and replaced it. This cost me $50 deductible due to the extended warranty which I purchased. On top of all of this, I own a 2002 Ford Taurus with only 27000 miles on it. In September of 2005, it would not start. The fuel pump was replaced on it. I will put this incident into a different complaint.
