Re: Heated driver seat

Hmmmmmm, I thought it was a heated seat issue, not a "paint concern."??????? What's going on here?

Re: Passenger seat rattle

Why not get a good-looking dummy doll and just belt her in (when you have no other passenger)? This will also help at toll booths and express lanes!!!!

Re: Yet Another Recall On The Way

As I said in another post, I had this recall performed last week. I took my 2010 Taurus in for the "works" and they told me about it. Inspection of all interior door handles showed no problems.

Re: Ford Taurus reliability (please sign up)

Consumer Reports (March 2015) has an article about customers’ satisfaction with car repairs. Out of 32 brands, Lincoln scored 3rd and Ford was 16th. Lincoln owners rated dealerships and independent repair shops about the same, but Ford owners preferred going to independent repair shops slightly over...

Re: Spoiler -- ???

You guys are killing me! Even though I have a Taurus now, I have owned 10 Mopars (Dodges and Plymouths) over the years, and I still have two of them now. My Dad got me started on Mopars, but my biggest disappointment in life was in 1958 when he "almost" bought a new big-fin-beauty Desoto. Well, he d...

Re: Ford Taurus reliability (please sign up)

I'm confused by Consumer Reports latest car ratings in their Dec2014 issue. Ford Taurus V6 was listed as one of the models most improved, but for large cars, Taurus AWD was rated less than average in reliability. (Could the V6 improvements be due to the large fleets of police interceptors now on the...

Re: Ford Taurus 19" Painted Aluminum Wheel Paint Color

Just take it to an auto paint supply company who can computer-match the color right from the wheel with a camera like device. They can then mix it and put it in a pint can or spray can for you. Around here a pint usually runs about ten bucks and a spray can about twenty bucks. Good luck.

I'm a large louie, so I guess that's why my rather large a$$ squashes the tubes and impairs the efficiency of this feature on my 2010. :roll:

Re: Rear Fender Separating From Bumper Cover

Well, I drove about 250 miles today (mostly freeway speeds), and the fender separated four times. But one time it was parked while I ate lunch. The sun was shining on the driver's side of my car - about 85° outside. I checked before I went in the restaurant, and the fender was intact. When I came ou...

Rear Fender Separating From Bumper Cover

Too weird. Have ya’ ever seen this before? It started a few months ago, but it recently has been happening more and more. The rear fender on the driver’s side separates from the bumper cover at the crease where they join. I’ve just been pressing them back together with my fingers when I notice it. A...

Even though I'm not in one of the "affected" states, I received a recall notice from Ford. I performed the inspection today, and there is no corrosion and the lens is not cracked/broken - only a screw missing. The instructions call for replacement in late September when parts are readily available. ...

Yep, that "spider machine" is cool. They can dial in the air pressure setting for your particular tire, and it does the rest. What next? :D

Re: Nitrogen in Tires--Ford Taurus 2014 SEL

I've been running nitrogen in my tires ever since Costco first introduced it (probably 10 years or so) - but not in my Taurus which still has its original tires. The Bone has explained the supposed benefits. I still check the pressure in my tires monthly and have seldom found loss in pressure. I als...
