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.

2000 Ford Excursion Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 072015

Excursion LIMITED 7.3L V8 Td

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles


Ford created the tri-door system for the Excursion with a fatal flaw. IF you close the lift gate BEFORE either door, you WILL destroy the lift gate glass by mistakenly trying to close either rear door. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. I have NEVER owned a vehicle that you could destroy the lift gate glass simply by closing the system out of order. There has to be a way to prevent the glass from shattering if this occurs.

WARNING to all who haven't had this happen, it's really easy to get distracted once, close the lift gate first and then attempt to close the rear door,
