i own a 2000 ford excursion and have had problems with the rotors warping since new. the dealers have said i was the only one with this problem but after seeing this web site i see that is not true. also i had the bearings go out in the right front wheel almost leading to the tire falling off if my wife had not noticed it in time. the rotors have been replaced twice have been turned at least every 15,000 miles since new i have around 80,000 miles now. the dealer did the brakes three times until the warrnty ran out at 36,000 miles i have had them fixed myself since then. this truck is said to be heavy duty and i only tow a camper with it twice a year 60 mile round trip i feel like i should not be having this kind of problem. the severe shaking that is caused by this makes if difficult to drive for my wife since she is the primary driver of the car. i cannot wait till my lease runs out so i can get rid of this car. the dealers will not help me at all. thank for and help you might can give william andrews

at 8000+ miles in january 2004, my driver's side seat heater broke. i turned the car in to the local dealer service shop for repair. since the vehicle was still under warranty the dealer replaced the faulty component, a shorted switch. i used the seat heater for approximately two and a half more months until it got warm. now it's november 2004 and i went to use the seat heater, and again it is broken. the dealer confirmed that it is the same problem that occurred in january. however, since i travel a lot in my vehicle, it is no longer under warranty and the part's warranty has also expired, 12 month/12000 mile. my complaint is that since the same part broke with limited use, the dealer just treated the symptom of the problem and not the cause. by replacing the switch, they didn't find out exactly what caused it's failure and therefore didn't fix my vehicle while it was under warranty. now they want to charge me for fixing the seat heater again.*ak

for approximately two weeks prior to december 5th, 2004, the heat element in my 2000 ford explorer driver seat would become painfully hot under the left leg near the torso to the point where it needed to be manually turned off each time. it was turned off as it became painful, and we were concerned we would become burned and would the seat catch on fire. my other concern for this is someone, such as a diabetic, with neuropathy wouldn't feel the intensity of the heat and become burned. 2) approx 2 weeks after the initial event the seat light will come on but no heat is produced. why did it take 2 weeks for the element (assumed) to burn out? 3) the car is scheduled to go to an independant mechanic as i do not trust ford to do the right thing. the dealer is not concerned that my driver airbag light goes on and off at will for days or weeks at a time. they recalled the 98 and 99 models for a tensioner pulley problem and issued a service bulletin for the '00 but the dealer wants to charge $500 for the repair......most defects i took in for warranty repair remain unfixed, (mostly electrical in nature) including a rear wiper that rarely goes on, radio stations and clock display that occasionally can be seen and a rear passenger door handle that after 5 attempts (ford went against their engineer recommendations to do a recall) will unlock with power lock but the unsuspecting or in a hurry will just about rip a hand off to get it open.*ak
