Re: Brake-Shift Interlock Release

Ok, update. Took it in and they are telling me I need to replace the entire shifter assembly for parts and labor of $640. There is absolutely nothing we could have done by flipping that interlock switch that could have failed anything that would require a whole new replacement. This place is screwin...

Re: Brake-Shift Interlock Release

So, now I have a dilemma I did have to perform this on my 2010 Taurus SHO, and sure enough, it was the tow driver that showed me how to do it (some of them do know). We thought it was the starter that was out, so we did not even try to jump the car. I had it towed to a shop (open on a Sunday) to hav...

Power Steering Motor Gear Issue

Well I have not been on here for a while. I almost went a whole year this time without a major issue. Here is the new issue. I started to hear my steering sound like something was rubbing. Like a plastic shield was rubbing on a moving part, or the sound of two pieces on rubber rubbing together. Turn...

Re: Power Rear Sunshade

My 2010 Taurus Limited (63,000 miles) just experienced the same issue. Took it to the dealer and was told that the motor, shade and supports were a single unit and would cost $875 to replace! Could that information possibly be correct??? Maybe, I was not changed for it because I was still under war...

Re: Clicking in the dash

Took it in, they agree it is the fresh air/reticulate valve. Car will be in for another 2 to 4 days. This is 3 issues in 6 weeks. I have people asking me at work what kind of car it is and it is nothing but bad news for Ford. A happy customer will tell 10 people, an unsatisfied customer will tell 10...

Clicking in the dash

You know, I loved this car. I really did. Now I am starting to wonder. This is my 3rd little problem to go with the one medium one that changed my vacation. Driving home tonight I heard clicking (7 to 8 clicks) that were very regular in frequency coming from the passenger side of my dash. It happene...

Stuck Fuel Injector

Ok, I searched the forums and could not find this issue on the new SHOs. I was driving to New Orleans in my 2010 SHO and never made it. Driving through McKinney, TX my check engine light started to blink, the car shook profusely when accelerating and at idle, and the car smelled like fuel. Luckily I...

Re: Power Rear Sunshade

One more thing,

When I was cleaning the rear window I found that the dealership did not lock the inerior panels into place, I had to go back and have them do it. Hey, I’m not going to do it and break one of those stupid clips. Then I have to pay for it.

Re: Power Rear Sunshade

They replaced the power rear sunshade assembly today. It took 2 hours and there are no issues now. Covered under warranty. My only complaint is that they worked in the back window area and they got hand prints and grease prints on the rear window and they did not clean it. If that is my worst compla...

Re: Power Rear Sunshade

Update: Went in today and they told me they would have to order a new sunshade and motor. Parts will not be in till Wednesday (more time off of work). Not quite the news I was hoping for, but, not bad either. I just do not like driving the car with the safety concern of not seeing out the back windo...

Power Rear Sunshade

Ok, it has been a while since I posted here. I need some help. 2010 Taurus SHO 35,200 mi. I was out today and when I got back in my car at the store and put the car in reverse the sunshade went up about ¾ of the way. I pressed the button to put it down and it went down and then back up 100% deployed...

Re: 2010 Ford Sho Transmission Problems

I have had exactly the same issue (intermittently) when I am coming to a rolling stop to turn into work. When I hit the accelerator to turn (did not come to a complete stop) it “hard shifts”. I have not reported it, it does not do it very often. I am surprised by Mel Hambleton’s response. I take my ...

Re: My 2010 Taurus SHO is a piece of crap

Sir, You may have mis-understood. I have not tried to bring mine back at all. The way I have dealt with CS reps were in other industries (credit cards, etc...) My SHO is fully equipped with everything but the massaging seat. Of the problems I have read here I have had a couple of somewhat "hard shif...

Re: My 2010 Taurus SHO is a piece of crap

The windows roll down and the sun roof tilts when you press and hold the unlock key on your key fob. This can happen if you fidget and play with your key fob on you pocket, if you hit and held the button before you walked out to your car to unlock it, or if you were lying down with your keys in our ...

Re: Windshields

Well I still have not had to replace the windshield again. After reading your post it sounds eerily familiar. The rock hit mine on the edge near the pillar. However as I said, it was an instantaneous crack. I am at 25,800 on my 2010 SHO now. Still lovin' it!

This is Wichita, KS. We never get that much snow. 2" at most and then it melts the next day. We currently have 9+ inches of snow on the ground. Because we are less prepared for this than most northern climates many restaurants and stores have closed for the day. Two of he major aircraft manufacturin...
