Heat only operated on max. Bought repair manual and repair part and fixed it myself. (vehicle was 1 month out of warranty and dealer would not help). Steering gear failed. (vehicle warranty was under mileage but over on time. (dealer would not help with parts or labor even though they knew the part was defective).

Car made grinding noise while turning. Progressively got worse. Had car checked and needed power steering rack replaced. Mechanic said it was failing, at less than 40,000 miles. Bought car used at 35,000 miles. Ford needs to recall the power steering unit as it is obviously a bad design. Called Ford and explained situation, but to no avail...

1999 Ford Taurus lost power steering, pump and rack needed to be replaced. The car had 36,264 miles, warrenty was up at 36,000. We thought this was a safety issue, contacted Ford and they were not overly concerned. We also thought they should reimburse some of the $1400 cost to replace the parts.

The consumer was driving when he heard a loud squealing noise under the hood. The steering had become hard to steer due to power steering pump and steering gear failure.
