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.

2009 Mercury Sable Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 102010

Sable 6-cyl

  • 5,500 miles


Driving down highway at 55 car goes totally dead. Was able to put in park and restart. After this happened on 3 other occasions the next 4 months took to a local, they couldn't find anything wrong and said to bring it back if it happened again. About 3-4 wks later it happened again so I was taking it back to the dealer that I brought it from 60 miles away, on way to dealership it died on me to more times once going 55 and then on the interstate doing 75. The mechanic there said it needed to have its computer updated. He did and I have not had anymore problem with it now the past 2 1/2 years.
