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 #1

Mar 142005

Excursion 4WD 10-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100 miles


The contact stated when attaching trailer to the vehicle the suspension on the vehicle did not support the weight. After the trailer was loaded the rear suspension dropped seven inches, causing the front suspension to raise seven inches. This shift in the suspension made it very difficult to control the vehicle while driving. The trailer attachments in use were the ones recommended by the manufacturer. The trailer was always loaded with weight that was less than the maximum allowed. The manufacturer recognized the problem, but has not offered a solution. The contact was told by the manufacturer this vehicle will not be produced after this year.
