2014 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

When using my turn signals to make a right turn. When I activate the turn signal my headlights will flash (only when making a right turn). It is an annoying situation. This happens whether the vehicle is in motion or stopped and has been going on for months.

Night driving is unsafe due to the nonexistence of peripheral lighting. When stopped at a stop sign attempting a turn it is completely dark, and only lit when the car has completed the turn. We cannot drive the car after dark due to this extremely dangerous condition.

The contact owns a 2014 Ford Taurus. While driving at 60 mph, the driver and passenger side head lamps and the instrument panel became inoperable. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failures. The approximate failure mileage was 24,000....updated 06-11-15 updated 9/18/15

The headlights are very limited during night driving. There is a very defined line between projected light and surrounding darkness. When traveling up or down even the slightest slope, the lights point down into the road directly ahead, giving no view or reaction time of possible obstacles, people, animals or stalled/parked cars. There is no peripheral lighting towards the front quarter so when a turn onto an intersecting roadway or driveway is necessary, it is completely dark and any objects, people or animals cannot be seen. This is the most dangerous night-driving I have ever done in any auto/truck.

It would seem someone would look into the plastic head lights on all models of cars. After a few years the head light covers get covered with something that seems to dim the head lights by 50%. this is an ongoing problem that may be causing night time accidents.
