Hi to all from PMCErnie

Just a note to say hi. Haven't posted in sooooo long. I'm running a cabernet red pearl '12 Genesis 3.8 sedan these days and loving it. The wife's '09 Taurus is doing well. No major problems. We often wish we could buy a brand new '09 Taurus. The new ones just don't have the room and comfort that we ...

Re: 2008 Ford Taurus message center

Ya know, I took a 5 year extended Ford warranty on my '09 Taurus and it looks like a smart decision when I read the price of repairs such as this one.

Re: aftermarket shocks

It's not economically sensible to pull the trigger, despite the mpg concerns. Why not compute the cost of potential gas savings first. You'll quickly see that any savings would be offset by the $$$ whack you take on selling your '08 car.

Re: Crossbar system for Taurus X?

Sounds like a serious overload problem for your car, given 6 people and all that other stuff. Why not rent a proper vehicle?

It also varies from state to state....

Re: 2009 Taurus Limited Intermittent Hard Shift on 2nd gear

Have had an intermittent problem with my 2009 Taurus since it was brand new. Four trips to the dealer, two out of state, then twice at the same one. They have been able to duplicate it twice in the dealer, but only reprogrammed the transmission each time. Now they want to duplicate it again, so hav...

Re: Cleaner for the fake wood

Unless you are cleansing baby vomit, or dog doo, just use a dry microfiber cloth for the entire dash area.

Tranny glitch

Okay, here are the symptoms. Does anybody know the cause? This has happened twice, but then car returns to normal for long periods of time. - Pulling out from a stop into a left turn, a rubbing noise is heard (like a tire rubbing in the wheel well). - Although the car is in Drive, depressing the acc...

Re: Michelin Hydroedge for Taurus Limited

Just got the 17" Hydroedge for our '09 SEL last week. Quiet riding and seem a bit smoother than the original Conti's. Not much rain since installation and no snow yet here in Richmond, VA. Hoping for the best. Following up on my above post, my new Hydroedge tires are quiet and soft-riding. I almost...

So, whatever became of the '05 - '07 Five Hundred and Montego postings? Looks like they've departed the first section of the forum.
