The contact owns a 2002 Ford Excursion. While parked, the vehicle accelerated without warning and crashed into the front of another vehicle. The dealer was unable to diagnose the cause of failure. The vehicle was taken to a second dealer who replaced the throttle cable. The failure has not occurred since the replacement was made. The current mileage is 95,000 and failure mileage was 94,300. The consumer provided an eyewitness statement, freeport police repor, various articles pertaining to the defect, and the repair invoice.

Excursion 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 103,000 miles
My 2002 Ford Excursion had a total brake failure resulting in a near fatal situation. When the vehicle was towed to the Ford dealership, they found a manufacturing defect. The plastic wheel well liner on the front left wheel was positioned against the metal brake line from the ABS pump and from the vehicle motion the liner had worn a hole in the metal line causing total failure of the brake system. This is a very serious design defect that needs immediate attention.
