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

Apr 032004

Excursion 4WD 10-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 73,000 miles


Headlight switch knob snapped off. Called Ford parts counter at my local dealership and was advised that this was occuring a lot in 2001 model Excursion and F250 models which both use the same switch. Employee stated that he had received numerous calls requesting the knob. Searched the internet and found that the 2000 model Excursion had a recall for this same problem [NHTSA recall no. 01V075/Ford recall no. 01S09] the 2000 model and the 2001 model appear to me to have the same headlight switch as the reacall notification did not start until March 26, 2001.
