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.

2002 Mercury Sable Owner Comments

The air blend door on my 2002 Mercury Sable broke for the third time this week. It is my understanding that this happens to many Ford customers. This time when it broke, the HVAC system was stuck on heating. However, it can also become stuck in A/C mode which would present a problem in the winter if attempting to defog or defrost the windshield. My dealer fixed the defective part the last two times, and I'm sure they'll fix it again.
