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.

2001 Ford Excursion Owner Comments

problem #1

The 2002 Ford Excursion that I have been using for transportation has a serious design defect in the rear hatch/rear door system, if either of the two bottom doors is shut after the top hatch has been lowered, the rear window shatters and the entire window (pobably weighing 50-60 lbs.) abruptly comes crashing to the ground. This happened to myself and to my family members with very little pressure being applied in shutting the door. First, this design defect should not exist, second there should, at the very least, be a very visible warning sticker on the window or the door assembly to advise anyone who might be using it of the serious potential for extreme bodily injury or even death if this window were to fall on a child or on an extremity causing serious vascular damage or even amputation.this is a very serious design defect that needs immediate attention and correction before someone else gets seriously injured or killed.
