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.

2005 Ford Excursion Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 55,371 miles


Driving on interstate at 70 mph, vehicle had a complete loss of power. Traveling with family in the vehicle had to bring to a stop on the side of the road with no power assistance. Mo highway patrol (motorist assist) had to be called to locate tow truck as we were in the middle of nowhere. We were told Ford has given assistance on the repair of this specific engine on other vehicles, pick up or large van, however they are ignoring the same repairs and failures with this engine in the Excursion.

Excursion Diesel

2005 6.0 L diesel Excursion engine light illuminated. Took vehicle to private garage who determined that fuel injection control module is bad. This is a recall (#05V27) on many similar vehicles, but not mine. I feel the recall should be expanded to the oxford plant vehicles.
