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.

2004 Ford Excursion Owner Comments

problem #1

May 292005

Excursion 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 16,000 miles


Vehicle was involved N an accident due to brake failure. The ABS went out. When opened the hood for investigation the master cyclinder separted from the brake booster cylinder. No lock on bolt and the nut sheared itself off. Called Ford and left message. Had to put new transmission at 16,000 miles as well. Had 2 mechanics look at this and suggested Ford should take notice.
