1999 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 012008

Taurus SE

  • Automatic transmission
  • 115,000 miles


I've had this car for 5 years and it's caused me nothing but trouble. After about 2 years of owning the car I started to have problems with the cruise control. It would fail to turn off when I braked, and would turn back on automatically. The final straw was the breaking of my power steering system. In addition to replacing the power steering pump (400$) I needed to replace the pins (or whatever they are called) that actually make the wheels turn (900$). This is in addition to suspension problems (700$) before I could even get the car to a safe driving level. Not to mention that within a year of getting the car the speakers quit working, the windshield wipers were coming on by themselves, replaced the motor mounts and a catalytic converter. And then last year I replaced the entire fuel system, new brakes and brake pads, and new tires. This year I replaced the breaks again and then the car was having an undiagnosed problem shifting. This car is a piece of sh*t!

I noticed that my cruise did not work on a trip. Next I noticed that my horn did not work and someone pointed out to me that my day running lights were flickering. When I put on the lights to full, the flickering stopped. The Ford dealership told me that the harness through which the electrical wiring runs needed to be checked for faulty wires. It is now fixed, at my expense. I have only had this car since July of 2000. Has anyone else experienced this problem? It seems to me that a car that is only 4 years old should not have such a problem. I am suspicious that the wiring of the Taurus was defectively installed.
