CarComplaints.com Notes: Most people need a car where the coil springs don't puncture or shred tires while driving. The Taurus fails in that respect.

The 1999-2003 Ford Taurus has a huge problem with coil springs breaking, which can puncture or even shred tires while driving.

The US government spent THREE YEARS (2008-2011) investigating the 2002-2003 Taurus coil springs. Although Taurus/Sable from earlier years were recalled, ultimately the NHTSA did not force a recall. They determined that because there had been no deaths & very few bad crashes & injuries, the broken coil springs defect was no big deal & not a safety defect. Tell that to all the owners who had close calls...

Just bought this car CASH ! I was told at Mullinax that everything passed there inspection . About 3 weeks later no air ? Found out the blower is filling up with water and shuts down the A/C. I took the blower out drained all the water … worked for several weeks and did the same thing again . I just tinted the windows and now I have no A/C in the car .
