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 032005

Excursion 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,888 miles


I was having a problem with the brakes on my 2004 Ford Excursion. The first time was around may of 2005 the truck had about 15000 miles on it. After driving it for short trip, every time I used the brakes, the whole front end and steering wheel would shake. The dealer machined the rotors and sent me on my way. Now it has 38000 miles and it's doing it again. It's so bad that you feel like every time you brake you might lose control. I don't think the front rotors on the truck are up to standards. The dealer says they can't help due to the mileage of the truck.
