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...

My hood on my car started getting large and smaller spots. They are peeling and blistering. Then the paint peels off looks terrible. Called Ford no one will help me to get it painted sounds like a lot of years of Ford vehicles. Please help us get it solved. Always thought Ford was a good dealer. I am a widow can't afford all this. Thank you
