Spring broke and mad an awful noise. No damage to tire. Recall protection update was in place and had been sine I received it years ago. Cost covered by the recall agreement Ford made, not actually by extended warranty, recall warrants front coils to 150000 miles or 10 years. BUT had to replace both rear springs at same time as one was broken on opposite side from front broken coil. The front broke as I started to leave a street parking around a gentle curve in a neighborhood street within 100 feet of startup at a mxximum of 10 or 12 miles an hour. In addition to all this I had already replaced one broken rear spring (opposite side) at about 64000 miles when it was found to be broken during a front ball joint replacement service visit. That visit was 1100 dollars out of pocket. This visit for rear springs is over 500 more out of pocket

Ok I take my ford Taurus in for no-heater. Within a week's time I had the 2 front springs replaced under warranty, both back springs replaced not under warranty (what's up with that). If the front ones are bad I would think any moron would figure the back ones are defective also. but no, I had to pay out of my pocket for those. and I had to buy 2 new front tires due to the defective springs. Never had a car break all four springs- It's not like I am a heavy person?? My bill for all this $1314.16 and still freezing my ass off -- guess what, no heat again.

I got the recall on the spring so I took the car in and had the guards put on. The front left springs did break but I didn't know it. I took the car in for a tire balance and a front end alignment but six months later I was back at the tire store for another balancing. They said I needed new tires. I put new tires on. I still had problems with the car pulling toward the center of the road. Over a year later the ABS break light came on and I took the car in to have the break lights checked. That is when they discovered the broken spring along with damage to tie rods and other suspension stuff. That guard might have saved Ford a law suit, but it cost me big bucks to get my car fixed.
