Re: 2013 SEL door handle recall

Got mine done last week. they sent me a notice to say parts were in. I schedule appointment for a Friday, dropped off, then they called to say the parts they needed would be in on Tuesday. Took it back Monday night , dropped off, it was fixed by lunch. I hadn't had any issues before or since.

Re: Taurus 3.5L Water Pump Failure

Should I be concerned that I got my water pump repaired at 84,000 miles and now I am at 164,000?
Might it go again after 80,000 +/-, or does Ford repair make life longer?

Re: Taurus 3.5L Water Pump Failure

Bad design having it internal. Mine was replaced at 82,000 miles. $2200. I saw yesterday that a class action law suit has been filed against Ford over the water pump issue. It would be a nice surprise if they issued a recall in response and i got reimbursed for some of my cost. 2013 Taurus (166,000 ...

Re: who has highest mileage?

I'm assuming you changed your water pump proactively, markfnc1? With the horror stories, I may do the same before 80k.. I put 104k on my 2012; no issues except rear brakes (calipers sticking). Just had the same problem with my 2013 at 25k miles. My dealership took great care of me and replaced the ...

who has highest mileage?

My 2013 SEL has 95,000.

Water Pump $2200
Front struts $880
Rear Brakes $ 200

A lot more issues, and more expensive issues than my 07 Explorer, and 05 Freestar.

Rear brakes, grinding sound, brake dust 2013 Taurus

90,000 miles. Rear brakes started grinding, and creating a lot of brake dust on rear rims. is it normal for rear to go before front? is 90,000 miles normal?

My 2007 Explorer went 175,000 miles on original brakes.

Re: 2011 Taurus 3.5L Water Pump Failure

How much did the 2 strips cost to replace? mine look like little rust sports, not rust, but look like it.

Re: 2013 SEL Cloth seat cleaning

These "cloth" seats still drive me crazy. the nylon looks like crap all the time. never getting cloth again, unless Ford goes back to the old cloth seats, like in my 2005 Free star mini van.
