Ford recall # 15S02. I brought it in during April 2015 and was told repairs were needed but Ford has no parts and I would hear when they became available.. I have followed up with auto nation Ford several time in the last 10 months and have been told Ford still hasn't gotten around to it. I contacted Ford headquarters and they don't give a [xxx] and remain criminally liable for child endangering negligence. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Rear view camera stopped working a short time ago. Car was completely inspected and I was told that the repair would cost $1136 ! car has very low mileage, no accidents, garage stored etc. I find it hard to believe such an expense on the car. How often will this become a problem" will I need to come up with $1100 or more on a regular basis every few years for such repairs ? is Ford aware of this problem with other cars and have made arrangements to assist in cost of repairs"

This is a recall complaint. There was a safety recall on the driver's side door handle at the end of March 2015. Took the car in and was told they had the parts and car would be ready at day's end. When I went back, they said they couldn't get the part and auto would be ready on Monday. On Monday they still didn't have the part and as of today Aug. 26, 2015, they still don't have the necessary part. They did provide us with a rental vehicle, but when I do pick-up my car"??????"they will charge me 300+$ for the work they did for my 50,000 mi check-up. I think they should cancel that fee for the months of inconvenience they have caused me!!!!!!! plus they have left my car sitting outside all of this time! weeds, summer sun beating down have all caused deterioration to my always (before) garage kept car. Can you help?

Taurus 6-cyl

Was driving at 65 mph on highway when I tried to accelerate nothing happened and I noticed all dash lights were on. I coasted to shoulder, shifted to park and pushed ignition button and it restarted. This has happened 5 other times and luckily there was a shoulder available, but the holman Ford dealership, (who is the only one who has ever serviced the car), says they have no idea what the problem is. It was a very dangerous situation and I noticed GM had similar problem and recalled autos due to death!! I have been lucky but now fear this car, after 5 times. It is not a stall. It just shuts off.

My 2001 Taurus ses during cold and/or snowy/rainy months doors freeze up constantly. Very difficult to get into car. When I finally manage to get in I have to drive holding onto the door because it will not reshut as the door handle assembly becomes lodged and door will not latch. I have inspected the rubber around door and it looks fine. But I do go treat it every cold season in hopes the door will not re-freeze but I have been unsuccessful as it still is happening. Finally after car has been heating up for about 45 min. To an hour with heater on full blast I am then able to get the door to latch shut. When this first started to happen I was unaware that door was not latched and when I went around a corner going about 5 miles an hour the door flew open. This started to happen in 2010 and has happened ever since and it is now 2012. All 4 doors freeze up but since I drive mainly alone it is the driver side that has become very annoying and hazzardous. This issue has made me late for work and many other appointments as well. Once I had my daughter as a passenger in the car and the passenger side door flew open and she went to grab it and the door was heavy and it pulled her with it. Thank got she had her seat belt on and that I was still in town going slow. Something needs done about this immediatly. As far as door latch, I carry a screw driver in the car so I can work at the latch located on the inside of the door. Need something over the door to keep moisture from seeping in or something on these cars.

The start engine button cuts the engine off if you accidentally hit it. It is right beside the radio on/off button so is very easy to hit by mistake. If you are driving 70 mph on the interstate and accidentally hit it you are left with no engine power, no power brakes and no power steering. Someone is going to get killed. I have written Ford a couple of times and have gotten no response except to tell my local dealer. It's not a dealer problem. The button should have some type of cover over it. This has happened to us while driving - luckily were able to put car in neutral and restart engine.

Headlights do not shine far enough ahead to be able to see anything that's over 200 feet ahead. Only way you can see farther is to use the bright lights all the time. You cant see curves coming up or deer standing in the middle of the road nothing. They just do not shine far enough in front of the car. There is a black line where the lights end like something is blocking the top half of the light. Very dangerous
