Blynx05 Love This Car November 22, 2017
Overall Score
I bought my Taurus SEL brand new and it's been so good to me over the years - very reliable and very comfortable. It's made many, many, many road trips...very good on gas. Money-wise, other than regular maintenance (oil changes, tire rotation, etc.), I honestly can't complain. If I could, I would keep this car forever. In the last two years I've noticed the rust which I suppose is to be expected. I hope when I need to replace this car I will be lucky enough to find one just as reliable.

On certain vehicles, the steering gear heat shield fasteners may have an incorrect coating that could cause the heat shield to corrode and detach. This could expose the steering gear system to higher temperatures and could cause the steering gear to overheat, which could result in a reduction of steering assist until the gear cools. If the steering gear electrical connectors were to melt, it would result in a sudden loss of steering assist. A loss of power steering assist could unexpectedly increase steering effort, which would increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will inspect the fasteners and replace as required. Note: In the event of a loss of power assist, the message "SERVICE POWER STEERING NOW" would be displayed in the instrument cluster.

On certain vehicles, the front coil springs may fracture when operated in high corrosion areas (where salt is used on the roadways in winter). The potential for corrosion causing a spring to fracture increases with the number of kilometres and years in service on the vehicle. A fractured spring could move past the spring seat and contact a front tire causing a rupture resulting in a rapid air loss. Correction: For vehicles sold in or are currently registered in the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, dealers will install protective spring shields as specified in recall campaign 04S17. In addition, Ford will notify nationwide all 1999 to 2001 Taurus and Sable owners of a Customer Satisfaction Program 04M04 in which Ford will provide additional repair coverage for replacement of fractured front coil springs for a period of 10 years from the original date of sale of the vehicle, or up to 240 000 kilometres, whichever occurs first.
