Re: 2014-2015 SHO's improved?

I have VERY LOW MILES ON IT.... ...and the fact is I pretty much take care of a recall notice each and every time I get the oil changed.

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. You had this recall done last week ? I JUST had my last two recalls taken care of last Friday and the dea...

No....the recall letter is in my car and I'm kinda lazy this evening. ...alcohol related..lol (and no...I didn't/don't drink and drive).


You can copy the recall I posted and paste it in Google or Yahoo and get PLENTY of info though.

Yet Another Recall

RIGHT-HAND FRONT HALFSHAFT RETENTION INSPECTION / REPAIR

It needs inspected and possibly repaired. I suppose I'll get that done at the same time as I get the license plate light (recall) fixed.

While I drive a 2013 SHO a quick internet search showed this may involve many other ford vehicles too.

Re: Condensation in tailight

So..... ...if it's normal shouldn't there be equal amounts of condensation in both taillights ?

I suppose one could get more sunlight than the other depending on where it's parked.

....then copy and paste each part number in the search (starting with PMP) area.

I think you can get each for $5.90 but I don't know if they rape you on processing or shipping charges.

I thought about that... ...but really I wouldn't think it would be diff far as primer and clear coat. I think there's a right way to do touch-up and then there's the 'nobody is going to know the diff' way. I'll do whichever I guess. ------------- I'm hoping someone with more knowledge on the topic c...

Re: Touch-Up Paint

I hear ya.

Still, FordParts.com suggests a primer, charcoal base, Ruby Red Tri-Coat, and then a clear coat.

$10 each...they're Motorcraft and sold (and recommended) by Ford.

Again, I want to do it right....but not get caught up in up-selling by their website.

Re: 2015 Ford Taurus Release

The 2015 Ford Taurus has been released without an ounce of fanfare or advertising. Why? ...because it ALMOST EXACTLY the same car. You can get a smaller turbo engine or diff rims. Umm..wow.

Thx for the video.

The short version in text... ...don't have your eco-boost turbos cleaned... ...it'll cause damage that may not be covered under the factory warranty.

Re: 2014 SHO Ambient lighting

I think you need to talk to another dealer. No kidding. If there was no place to install a new 'bulb' it takes it to another level too. ...aka manufacturing. A dealership should have been aggressive acting as a representative of a customer with Ford when a car has such an issue. However, I think th...
