More Quality, paint peeling on rear hatch.

Waxing my wife's 08 Taurus X with 47K miles on it today I noticed bubbling on the outside of the rear hatch at the bottom, where the hatch meets the bumper. Futher inspection revealed the paint is peeling on the inside lip and the hatch is rusting. Car will be 4 years old in Oct. 2012, what a disapp...

Re: Taurus X transmission woes. Any ideas?

Well called Ford Service Dept in Detroit. The gal I talked with was very understanding. I Got a case number but appears nothing will be done. So Ford, my future car purchases will NOT BE a FORD.. Sincerely, A LOST CUSTOMER The sad thing is Ford does NOT care. I don't understand the logic in a compa...

Re: Transmission

Just took my 2008 Ford Taurus Limited to the dealership for a transmission leak and no power steering. I get a call back from them that the leak is coming from the chiller pump and need to be replaced for $950. Then they proceed to tell me there is no problem with the power steering. They said the ...

Re: Just dropped another one at the DEALER !

Hi Quality Taurus? Not with these transmissions they aren't. I think Ford would rather lose a customer than own up to bad design. At least they aren't blowing up and killing people like the Pinto's used to. Look how long it took Ford to own up to that disaster. Trouble is, they aren't the only comp...

Re: Just dropped another one at the DEALER !

I had my OSS replaced, almost a year later I had the turbine shaft speed sensor and some other sensor replaced and the hard shift and jerking is still there. Once I pay some more down on the loan of mine I am trading it in. With all the unhappy Taurus owners and word spreading through the net, who ...

Re: Strange cruise control / speed sensor problem

Can I get then number on that TSB ????? Would like the number because any dealership's service department in my area is not skilled enough to find this TSB. My printer is broke and I can't print this page either. Thank you for any help.

Re: Strange cruise control / speed sensor problem

My 08 Taraus X is doing the same thing, 46K miles and my Dealership is useless. There was a Lincoln dealer in towm (in business since 1946) that did some good service work on my car but, Ford closed them. Good Job Ford !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Keep the crappy dealer and close a good one !!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Taurus X transmission woes. Any ideas?

I have an 08 Tarus X , just turned 46K miles and is acting up. My dealership has the worst service department in the world and I will not take it back to them. Thank you Ford for pushing this garbage on the public that should have never been released !!!!!!!!!!!!! Keep up the good work !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
