1954 Mercury Monterey Race Car - Authentic La Carrera Pan Americana Winner 1st Overall 1992 La Carrera Panamericana Mexico FIA historic marathon rally with drivers Dr. Peter Frank and Mark Williams. This 1954 Mercury Monterey has a very interesting history. As the story goes, Dr. Peter Frank was infatuated with the legendary race since visiting Mexico as a child on a family vacation. With his interest in vehicles and speed he decided to take this race on when it was revived by Loyal Truesdale and Eduardo Leon in 1985. This Mercury was located in 1989 and was taken to the same shop that had built the 1988 race-winning car for the La Carrera. Dr. Frank explained, “you need a battle-ax. You want to be sure your brakes, suspension and steering are top-notch. You want a strong engine. But since it’s a 2,000 mile race, you want to tend towards reliability rather than horsepower. The Mercury is a leaner, meaner Lincoln, slightly smaller, but you could still get that big engine in there.” It was built on a platform that included a 351-cid V-8 engine, automatic transmission, complete NASCAR-style brakes, upgraded suspension, full roll cage with a red and black exterior finish, along with the associated graphics from running, and winning the modern La Carrera Panamericana.

NHTSA probing 2000-2003 Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable models over throttle issue

Mon, 29 Oct 2012 11:01:00 EST

A potential issue with the speed control cable collar has got the 2003-20003 Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable under the spotlight of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. If the collar breaks it can cause the throttle to be stuck open.
The issue is limited to vehicles with the 3.0-liter V6 Duratec. There are just 50 complaints so far out of 310,000 cars, but the NHTSA has begun an investigation into whether a recall should be issued.

Ford announces free brake pad offer if customers stop by dealers

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 00:01:00 EST

These days, when you buy a new car, it's not unreasonable to expect a certain period of free maintenance to come along as well. Sometimes this is through the life of the warranty, in other cases a little less. But Ford Motor Company is going beyond those deals for at least one part of its cars. As of now, if you buy a set of Motorcraft brake pads for a Ford, Lincoln or Mercury model, you get free replacements for as long as you own the vehicle. The offer is good at Ford or Lincoln dealers and Quick Lane Tire & Auto Centers.
"We will replace the pads for as long as you own the vehicle," said Elizabeth Weigandt to Autoblog. She did clarify that the Motorcraft pads are generally for models from the '90s or newer. Also, to take advantage of this program, a person must return to the same dealer each time to get the free parts.
Of course, Ford isn't just handing out brake pads to anyone who walks by; there are certain stipulations. First, the components have to be worn down to less than three millimeters to be eligible, and the buyer still has to pay for the labor to install them. If the model is used as a fleet vehicle for commercial purposes like as a taxi or limousine, this offer also doesn't apply; the same thing for racecars. On the plus side, if you recently bought a set of pads from one of the participating locations, you're still in luck. The deal covers parts purchased as of July 1.

NHTSA investigating 725k Ford, Mercury vehicles for stalling issue

Mon, 25 Feb 2013 17:31:00 EST

Owners of Ford Escape, Mercury Mariner, Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan models, listen up. According to a report on Automotive News, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened an investigation into these four vehicles totaling an estimated 725,000 units. The investigation appears to center around a malfunctioning throttle body on non-hybrid models of the 2005-2012 Escape and 2011-2012 Fusion. With Mercury dying off after the 2011 model year, this probe will also apply to the 2005 through 2011 Mariner and the 2011 Milan. There has been some discussion around the Escape stalling issue for some time now, but this investigation appears to be larger in scope than before.
Though not a recall yet, NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) has received 123 complaints of stalling or surging vehicles, while Ford itself has logged 1,472 complaints. The investigation report, which is posted below, seems to indicate that a faulty circuit board for the throttle body could cause the vehicle to go into limp mode, which, according to NHTSA, could cause complaints of both stalling and surging.
