Very frustrating. I got it repaired I suppose at a reasonable price by a family member who is a gifted auto mechanic. Since car was only 2 years old, I just wanted to move forward without any more problems.

(reported on)

Taurus SE V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 41,000 miles

I knew better than to purchase a Ford, but I did. Under warranty at 30K miles, I had a leak on the passenger side that leaked onto the floor board, plus drivers side seat belt would latch 50% of the time. Now at 41K miles my heating/cooling fan only works on high speed. I have not had this serviced yet, but I cannot wait to see what this will cost. I've had the car one year and I rotate and balance the tires every 5K miles and it rides like a log truck. Seriously, I bought this car hoping I would not have any problems until at least 75K miles (expect standard maintenance). I have to say, this will be my first and last Ford product.
