Re: Bye Bye Five Hundred

That is a lot of miles and it has served you well.
Our 08 has only 38k. Not sure we will make that at this rate.

Re: Warranty Items

How did your dealer determine they were not covered? That just should not be. Mine were covered under the premium ext warranty.

Re: 2008 Taurus Limited body side molding

The moldings that came on the Ford Five Hundred are simple and should work for you.. see pic. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://images.thecarconnection.com/med/2007-ford-five-hundred-4dr-sdn-awd_100159643_m.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.thecarconnection.com/news/1021467_compared-2010-ford-taurus...

Re: Warranty Items

It is covered. I did a search and found this interesting news report out of San Francisco. Check it out and be sure to follow up with Ford (or your local station :) ).

Re: body side molding

Purchase the factory side moldings for the Ford Five Hundred... one option idea. :)

Re: Warranty Items

Which extended warranty did you have? The PremiumCARE warranty will cover the seat heaters as I recently had it replaced - see my waranty thread.
What deductible did you purchase with it?

Re: 2008 Taurus Limited body side molding

If you are looking for a factory look, you can purchase the factory moldings from Ford that came on the '05-'07 Ford Five Hundred.

Re: Knocking noise coming from dashboard ?

This thread is a bit old but I had a similar problem with my '08 Taurus. It was the mode air door actuator motor. In my case it was part number AA5Z-19E616-C.

Re: Ford Warranty Covered part question

Update - Taurus is still in shop. Forgot to mention to service advisor about the mafunctioning power seat heater. Those parts needed to be ordered to from out of state. Advisor called to say our car should be ready by Wednesday. It has been in the shop for two weeks by then.

Re: Ford Warranty Covered part question

I agree completely, but Ford will never do it. Update - My Taurus went into the shop a week ago. The power steering pump seized... mighty unusual for a lightly driven 25k car. Spoke with the dealer today. They replaced the pump and on the test drive determined the steering gear need replacing too d...

Re: Stereo Question..

I don't know if you solved your wiring question but if not, I have the '08 shop manuals and can research them a bit to see if there are wiring diagrams.

Ford Warranty Covered part question

My '08 Taurus is currently in the shop as the power steering pump seized. I have the Premium care extended warranty. The dealer called to say that it needs a new pump and belt but added that only the pump is covered as the belt is a wear item. I knew that as it as the warranty clearly states specifi...

Re: 08 Sable transmission screwed up

It is not normal for that transmission. Our '08 Taurus had upshift issues and finally what seemed like no power/ slipping issues and when my wife took it to the dealer. They inspected it and followed TSB 07-21-11 for DTCS P0717-0720 and PPT C (what does PPT C mean?) and replaced a "turbine shaft spe...

Re: Car rolls backwards - tsb?

How can you verify that it was actually done. I am waiting until after the first of the year to have mine done.
