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.

2003 Ford Excursion Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 012007

Excursion 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Manual transmission
  • 60,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Ford Excursion. The contact stated that the vehicle lost its power steering and the brakes failed. The failures have occurred twice. While driving at an unknown speed on the highway, the master cylinder and the hydro boost failed while the brakes were being applied. This forced the master cylinder into the engine compartment. The dealer and manufacturer have not yet been notified. The contact is an afc certified technician and replaced the components himself. The current mileage was 64,000 and failure mileage was 60,000.
