Taurus X 6-cyl

  • 36,000 miles
I have had nothing but problems with this car since I purchased it in 2010 with 32,000 miles on it. I purchased it in April and by the end of the first summer of driving it began to lose all power when driving slowly I would not be able turn the wheel or anything. Luckily all times it happened I was in a parking lot or at a stop sign. Ford said it needed a computer update which was not covered under the warranty. I paid $66 for the update, it did not work my car still lose power sometimes when coasting. My car also accelerates without warning. This is very scary because this is my main vehicle and I have two small children. Ford says there they haven't witnessed the issue while driving it so they can't find the problem. Also with in that first year of owning this car my wrench light came on and remained on took it to the dealer and it now needed the throttle body replaced. It was still under warranty so I "only" needed to pay the $100 deductible. I did and it was replaced. Sometimes the car will also unexpectedly grind to a halt. No idea what that is but it doesn"?T happen frequently enough for them to witness it so they can't find the problem. To add to the list the passenger door is not sealed correctly and whenever it rains the inside of the door becomes filled with water, but that?"S not covered under warranty at all. And finally the paint on the hood is bubbling and chipping. The car is four years old now and no longer under the factory warranty so they won't cover it. I feel completely taken advantage of and I have no idea where to turn or what to do but I feel this car will not last the length of the loan. And I feel very unsafe driving my children in this vehicle. It makes me sick. I will never ever buy another Ford. Ford should step up and take responsibility before someone gets seriously injured.
