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.

problem #1

Excursion 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • 87,000 miles
Left turn signal inoperative when turned on normally, if signal lever is held partially to the left before the detent to hold it in the left signal position, the signal will work. Found a NHTSA campaign describing this issue (11V352000) for my make and model and found out Ford has issued a recall (11C18) for the turn signal switch, it but I called Ford and they said my vehicle is not a part of the recall. I suspect the problem may be more widespread.
