2015 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

problem #4

Nov 112016


  • 12,630 miles


The contact owns a 2015 Ford Taurus. While driving 65 mph, the engine stalled without warning. The vehicle was able to restart, but failed to accelerate when the accelerator pedal was depressed. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the throttle body module and gasket failed and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 12,630.

Driving on the highway at 70 mph experienced sudden loss of engine power- no limp home mode just loss of acceleration - coasted to the side of the road. After turning car off and back on was able to continue driving. Only error shown was see manual. Failed three more times before I could get off the road - known problem with throttle body - extremely dangerous situation as you can can have difficulty getting off the road crossing several lanes. This should be a major recall. If you are not able to get off the road in time you will most likely experience being rear ended on the highway. As I researched this this has been happening for years and is still not fixed - why is the nhstb not taking this more seriously.

problem #2

  • 1,502 miles
Avis rental car in las vegas, nv: Pressing the engine start/stop pushbutton switch caused the whole switch assembly to fall backwards down behind the dash panel, rendering the Taurus inoperable. Although this incident occurred in a parking lot, pressing the engine start/stop pushbutton switch and having it fall down into the dashboard area creates a potential serious safety issue. (this frequently used switch should not be mounted from behind the panel with the small tangs/grooves currently used.) I was unable to obtain the rental car VIN but have.jpg photos of the affected vehicle.

Taurus 6-cyl

  • 300 miles
The contact owns a 2015 Ford Taurus. After driving the vehicle, a strong abnormal odor emitted from the hood. When the contact opened the hood, the steam was so hot that he could not touch the radiator hose. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The technician stated that the water pump was placed in a different location from previous older models causing the radiator to emit higher heat. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 300. Updated 5/11/15
