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 car was in for service at Feduke Ford on 12/05/11. As part of service, fluids are checked and topped off. Next day, my brake warning light came on. I checked the brake fluid level and found it low. Upon looking at my service billing, fluids were checked and topped off. Guess they missed this? ( I had discussed previous repeated loose oil filter problem during this visit)
