Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Taurus 6-cyl

  • 132,000 miles


Since my 2007 Ford Taurus hit the 100K mile mark, everything started failing. First it was a simple cam sensor, then radiator (X2) throttle body, (X4 each winter for 4 years in a row would just fail. Ended up replacing with an after market brand. Haven't had a problem since) now recently, with in the last 6 months, all suspension (struts, sway links, ball joints) all failed. Replaced rears once, fronts are still a problem on second new pair. Going on third pair just with in 2 months of each replacement, the struts just fail. Tried several brand. Kyb, and gabriel. All failed after only 2 to 3 months of replacing. Plus tie rods, and ends are bad. Already stuck in a good $3000 just to keep this car drivable. Wondering if it`S even worth fixing anymore at this point. Mechanics can`T explain why all of the sudden, the car`S eating struts in such short time. Nothing appears to be damaged under body. And I purposely avoid pot hole ridden side roads, and rail road crossings when I can. So it`S not like I`M being rough on the car. Never had so many problems with my 2001 Ford Taurus. Should have just kept it. :(

While driving slowly the vehicle became loud. The exhaust pipe had broke away from its exhaust pipe to exhaust manifold clamp and was laying on the ground. The actual clamp was still in place.

I have already had the throttle body replaced 3 times on my vehicle. It lope, headlights dim/bright, and jutts. Also slight unexplained acceleration occurs, and occasional hesitation on acceleration. Fuel filter replaced, fuel pump checked out working properly, and injectors are running fine. Also alternator checked out good, new spark plugs, wires working fine, new battery. Mechanic cannot find anything wrong with the car, but it runs terribly. It`S loped since around 60K miles, and seems to be steadily getting worse. Also on third radiator. A friend told me it could be the ac getting low or charging, or possible iac motor going out, but there`S no real good way of testing it. Dealers keep telling me they won`T fix unless it`S for sure broken. Will take till I`M stranded till a mechanic will fix the problem.

The contact owns a 2007 Ford Taurus. The contact stated the vehicle stalled while driving 30 mph. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer who stated the instrument cluster caused the vehicle to stall. The dealer replaced the instrument cluster. A month after the repair the vehicle continued to stall. The contact took the vehicle back to the dealer who confirmed that the instrument cluster was faulty and needed to be replaced again. The second repair also did not remedy the stalling. The failure mileage was 58,000.

We pulled out of our driveway and drove around the corner when we heard a load noise. The car had little power; therefore, we turned around and, slowly, drove back to our home. Upon inspecting the vehicle, it was found that the exhaust pipe had dropped and was dragging on the ground. I did a search for 2007 Ford Taurus exhaust system problems and found that this is a very common occurrance for this vehicle year. I am concerned that the vehicle was not recalled and the problem repaired at no cost to the consumer. As a recall coordinator at a medical device manufacturer, I understand the importance of quality in your product as well as the cost of poor quality. I do not believe that the cost of poor quality should be passed on to the consumer. Ford should have to take care of all expenses. I purchased this automobile with 14000 miles and was not aware of this problem. Though the car has a substantial number of miles, this still should not have occurred and I was never aware of this reoccurring problem; otherwise, I would never have purchased the vehicle knowing that the manufacturer was not covering the cost to repair the problem. Had we been on the highway traveling at rates of 65 to 70 miles per hour, we would have been seriously injured, maimed, or even killed!

I had driven my car in the am and it would not start in the afternoon. I called for a tow on Monday, after the holiday. The symptoms presented at the time of failure were: The car did not start, and the anti-theft light was blinking. The car was jumped and the vehicle was brought in for service. The dealership could not find any problems. Today, the car stopped working again, same issues. This time I did not allow the car to be jumped. Instead, it was towed to the dealer who was able to run a better diagnostic which appeared to be the alternator, but it could also be the computer. In researching the issue on my own, this seems to be a major problem with Ford cars and has been for years. Some were driving when the car just 'shut down. The following are just a few of the complaints that I've found."F=37&T=13438&P=101835#P101835"qid=20070823101809aaeoyae please note, one report on one website has had over 600 views. This is a serious issue that has gone on for quite some time and Ford needs to fix it.

Bought a 2007 Ford Taurus, have had nothing but problems. Al hendrickson Toyota was the dealership. Tires were wearing out every 500 miles, each time they said it was the alignment. Have had many cars in my 40 years of driving. Told them the car must have been in an accident and I wanted another car was refused.. then the engine blew up had warranty, the engine that was just put N is also no good I think their fraudulent selling practices should be stopped. I am an elderly female, disabled and cannot get to drs ect without a car.
