Re: Traded my 2014 Lmtd. Taurus today...

So cars from the 80's and 90's will deter you from buying one now? Cars, during that time frame, were junk as a rule. Sheet metal, paint, frames, engines, transmissions all had issues from many or even all manufactures. Going by your logic I sure as heck wouldn't buy another Ford based on what I sa...

MFT Climate defaults to outside air... Well there are plenty of dead skunks on the roads around here, and that darn thing knows exactly when I'm about to come on one... It will default to outside air every time just before I get there... Can Ford not give us credit for having a small portion of a b...

Re: Traded my 2014 Lmtd. Taurus today...

Week 5, no issues. I actually am really liking this car! My previous car was a very problem prone Audi S4. I am hoping this car will be a great car for a long time! If I have one semi major problem, I will immediately sell the car and only buy Japanese from that point on! My Wife's car is a 2008 Ho...

Re: Traded my 2014 Lmtd. Taurus today...

Wow, I also bought a 2014 limited from a dealer that turns over a lot of previous rentals. So far I am very pleased but today only marks week three. Well I did make a bad call on mine that influenced the trade... I kept seeing these small flickers in the right light on the windshield, and came to t...

Re: Spoiler -- ???

It's not going to do anything. Ever. You dont have a RWD vehicle, so whatever downforce it creates, is basically a waste. It's purely aesthetic. OK---Back to the OP question on the spoiler... Derick, my thoughts exactly, I totally agree with your statement, but it does add a bit more sporty look IM...

Re: Spoiler -- ???

Funny thing about the spoiler. I dont drive this car that fast. I have only had it to 100 a couple of times and usually cruise at 80 which is the flow of traffic sometimes. Take a look at a sho with the spoiler and look at a Taurus without and see if you like the look. Before you all laugh I have a...

Re: Spoiler -- ???

It comes stock on the SHO and yes it does produce downforce. The spoilet on my GT500 is smaller and it produces downforce. As to how much no one can say for sure unless you have a wind tunnel to test it. I wasnt aware it was a option on any model other than the SHO since I havent seen one on any ot...

I bought (traded for) my 2014 used, and If mine had not been a one owner ( Rental Co. car ) and I found a lot of suspect things, like tire dates on one side different than the other, evidence of sand blast, a very slight pull to the left that they would/could not correct, (I could have lived with it...

Does the spoiler (2015 Taurus) actually have a benefit at normal Hwy. speeds, or is it just a looks thing only, at normal Hwy. speeds... I feel sure if I was running at 180 mph. it would probably be functional, but I'm thinking at normal speeds it is just there... I was thinking that if it had a ben...
