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

Sable 6-cyl

Windshield on 2002 Mercury Sable is defective. The consumer heard a noise coming from the right side of the windshield in the area of the glove box. The problem was intermittent. The problem would seem to get worse during cold weather. (rattling and whistling) the rear brake light would stay lit after the consumer exited the vehicle. The consumer would have to reopen the vehicle and step on the brake pedal a few times before the brakes would go out. (this was an occasional problem) the brake pedal was on recall which was #04106000, but the windshield was not. The windshield recall #03V087000.

Brake and gas pedals are too close together, more than once, vehicle failed to stop because when applying the brake consumers foot hit the gas pedal and vehicle would not stop..
