Ford Taurus 2001 Vehicle Speed Control Review #729834

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on Aug 19, 2000.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . on three occasions, although i didn't realize it at the time, while braking to stop, i was also accelerating causing the car to lurch forward. the harder a pressed on the brake the greater the accelleration. as i said, i had no idea my right foot was on both pedals at the same time. i had the car towed back to clarke ford for their inspection. they performed that inspection on 8/21 and reported no apparent problems. i returned to the dealership that evening to pick up the vehicle. the salesman and i took a test drive to see if i could replicate what i had experieced on the 19th. couldn't do it so i drove my other vehicle home and the salesman followed me home in the new vehicle. the salesman drove me back to the dealership and as he proceded into a parking space he braked to stop the car but at the same time the car wanted to accelerate just as had happened to me on three occassions. the startled salesman exclaimed "is that what happened to you" and he looked down at his which was on both the brake and the accelerator. mystery solved. this had never happened with any other vehicle i have owned or leased in 43 years of driving. i inspected the position of the brake and accelerator pedals in my other two cars and a couple of co-workers cars and discovered that the distances, both depth and width, on the new taurus were much closer than the other vehicles. on the new taurus, i can depress the brake with my hand and it will desend to a level lower than the accelerator. i could not do this in the other vehicles, even by using my foot to brake. the brake pedal never got to the level of the accelerator. i believe the ford new design, which is a power adjustable brake and accelerator pedal bar to accomodate short statured people, could be a defect which could cause serious accidents, similar to those that occured in the jeep a number of years ago..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FAFP55S11A.

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on June 06, 2001.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:PARK/NEUTRAL START SWITCH . problem #1: when the car is started and the transmission is put in reverse, the car "jumps" back approximately 1 foot, even though your foot is pressed firmly on the brake pedal. this was reported numerous times to the dealership who has been unable to locate the cause of the problem. the dealership replaced the transmission "in the hopes" that this would correct the problem but it did not. when i informed the dealership of this, they claimed that the "jumping back" problem was normal vehicle operation. this does not make any sense since they admitted it was a problem previously and tried to correct it by replacing the transmission. problem #2: the driver-side seat belt tightens by itself around the lap while driving. this is resulting in a restriction of normal movement inside the car. the seatbelt has, on several occassions "locked-up" while the car was in motion, preventing me from turning to look over my shoulder for on-coming traffic to make a lane change on the highway. the dealership tried to fix this by replacing the seatbelt. when i informed them that the tightening problem still existed, they said that the seatbelt tension was normal. this again does not match what they had previously said and acted on by replacing the seatbelt in an attempt to correct the problem. both of these problems pose, in my opinion, a significant safety hazard that the dealership is currently claiming are both beyond their capability to rectify.*ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FAFP53U21A.

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on Jan 26, 2003.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with TIRES:SIDEWALL . one of my oem tires (firestone affinity) suddenly failed without warning. there was no road hazard damage such as nails or screws involved. the tire's outside sidewall failed resulting in a split large enough that a credit card could slide through it. the oem tires had less than 18,000 miles at the time of failure. the pressure had been checked during a routine service visit on all of the tires one month prior to this. after taking the tire to a corporate firestone store, they blamed the failure as "impact damage". basically they said it was my fault for hitting something and not due to a problem with the tire. if i had actually hit something, then i could accept the problem. but since i did not hit anything when the tire failed, i am now concerned about the other oem firestone affinity tires on my 2001 ford taurus. there were four passengers in my car at the time this tire failed and all would reitterate the fact that nothing in the roadway was struck to cause the sidewall failure. i was only traveling less than 20 mph when the tire failed as i approaced a stop light. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 17500 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on Feb 10, 2004.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . i have, on several occasions taken my car to the dealership for check engine light, engine running roughly, and transmission problems. each time the check engine light has been taken care of by installing a different type of sensor (which happens to never be covered under the so-called extended warranty i purchased). the transmission problem, on the other hand, is a problem that has yet to be rectified yet remains a problem. for example, when turning out onto the highway from a stopped position, car will accelerate properly at first but then rpm's will build and transmission will violently jerk after the increase in rpm's. this has also happened on several occasions during high-speed (55-75) driving conditions. of course, the dealers (yes, i've had it at two dealers) have never found anything wrong with the transmission even though i have had an independent transmission repair person change the fluid and filter and inform me that there was a film in the fluid indicating a wearing problem within the transmission.*ak.Ford Taurus 2001 problem was reported in KINGS MOUNTAIN, KY.

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on Jan 28, 2004.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with AIR BAGS:SIDE/WINDOW . side airbag deployed after car (2001 ford taurus) hit pothole. no side impact took place. no damage to side of car. only damage was scrape on rim of front left wheel after it went into the pothole going forward. on at least 2 occasions prior to this the airbag light went on and off periodically. incidents were documented with auto dealer at service interval and dealer said could not find problem. but with a history of a problem with sensors and a deployment due to no side impact, this in my opinion represents a safety issue that should be explored as having an airbag go off as you are driving could certainly trigger an accident.*ak.Mileage was 43000 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on Mar 01, 2004.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with SUSPENSION . the anti-sway bars on my ford taurus ses have come loose on three separate occasions. the bars came loose at 10,000 miles, 16,000 miles, and most recently at 50,000 miles. since the latest repair (at 50,000 miles) is now allegedly out of warranty the dealer want $140 to fix the problem again. and there is no guarantee that this problem will not continue to resurface. i argued with the dealer and the manufacturer (ford customer relations) that this is an ongoing problem and a defect, not a new problem. the bars should not be coming loose on their own. it is important to note that on the second repair attempt (at 16,000 miles) the dealer installed a special kit that they received from ford to fix this problem. this is evidence that the manufacturer and the dealer are aware of a generalized problem and that sway bars are coming loose on this car model (2001 taurus ses) and perhaps on many others that share the same sway bar design. nhtsa should investigate the safety issue involved in loose sway bars on the ford taurus. nhtsa should also investigate the attempt by ford and the ford dealers to make customers pay for repairs that never resolve the problem. if ford and the dealers are allowed to claim that this repair is out of warranty then all they have to do is sit and wait until the warranties expire and all defects become a customer-paid repair.*ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 10000 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on Nov 15, 2003.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with TIRES . bought used 2001 taurus in aug. of 2002. on the test drive i noticed the car pulled to the left and there was vibration in the steering wheel. the dealer at no cost to me did a wheel alignment and wheel balance. i drove again and it was fine. approximately 4500 miles later the steering wheel vibration returned and the car was again pulling slightly to the left. i took it in to the dealer again and was told that the likely cause of the vibration was that a wheel weight was lost, but had no explaination for the pulling. they rebalanced the wheels and rotated the tires. again everything was fine until nov. 2003 as i was driving i once again felt the vibration in the steering wheel and it was much more severe on cornering. i took it to an independent repair shop(nearest ford dealer was 25 miles away). they found the left front tire to have a flat spot on the outer tread area(slipped belt) and both outer tie rod ends to be loose, the left one being extermely worn. they indicated to me that they have seen numerous problems with the continental oe tires not holding balance, having bad wear problems, etc. they installed two aftermarket, greasable tie rod ends and did a wheel alignment and rotation. at this point i have submitted the repair bill to a ford dealer for possible reimbursment, however i am not holding my breath. my opinion is that continental tires are junk and ford knows it. the ford dealer indicated to me that they have had no othe problems like mine, a much different opinion than the independent garage. also tie rod ends usually don't fail at 39k miles for no reason. i have a friend that has a 2002 taurus with continental tires and has had to have them balanced several times due to steering wheel vibration. .Mileage was 39415 miles.

Ford Taurus 2001 Fuel System, Other Review #10108148

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on Dec 28, 2004.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, OTHER . on the date below about 8.00 am, i was involved in an accident with my 2001 ford taurus. although it was very cold that morning the skies were clear and their was no precipitation at all. roadways were clear for the most part. i was coming down a mountain road traveling to work when i encountered an icy patch of road that had formed probably due to frost conditions since it was very cold. when i applied the brakes my ford taurus seemed to accelerate pushing me faster down the hill. a slow moving truck was a head of me and i could not slow down in time. at the same time a car was in in the passing lane beside me since this was a four lane highway. i swerved an struck the car in the passing lane. there were no injuries. my taurus had to be towed to the garage and upon repairing the vehicle i was notified that a fuel censor needed replacing at my expense. i spoke with the mechanic and he informed me that this part could cause the car to accelerate suddenly. my insurance is forcing me to take responsibility for this accident and the police has cited me also. i was not speeding as evidenced by the car passing me. i know my car had accelerated forward and i believe this may be a defect with the tarrus. one last footnote is that a car before me skidded on the same icy patch and had a more serious accident that involved an ambulance and fire assistance. this vehicle was also a late model ford taurus.*ak.Vehicle was involved in a crash. 0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 56000 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on Feb 02, 2005.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE:GASOLINE:BELTS AND ASSOCIATED PULLEYS . i have a 2001 ford taurus station wagon with a little over 56,000 miles on it. i turned off the engine at a long stop light & when i turned it back on, i had no power steering. i was able to drive the car the remaining mile to work with great difficulty. when i got to work i noticed the serpentine belt had broke. after work, i was able to drive the car 2 miles to a garage for repairs, once again without power steering. the garage stated that the reason the serpentine belt broke was that the bearings in the air conditioning clutch were seized which caused the clutch to lock up. this caused tremendous friction on the serpentine belt causing it to break. the mechanic showed me the air conditioning clutch with the seized bearings & also stated that the bolt that holds the clutch to the engine was about to come off & that would have caused the clutch to come off the engine. the shop manager stated that this problem should never happen to a vehicle with this amount of miles on it, but he had noticed this problem lately with newer model fords. this problem did not cause an accident as i lost power steering when the vehicle was not moving. i am also a muscular man, so i was able to steer the vehicle at low speeds worth great difficulty. however, if this had happened at a highway speed with my wife or my teenage daughter driving, they would not have been able to control the vehicle & would probably have crashed potentially causing serious injury or death. i would like this problem investigated to see if there is a design problem with the air conditioning clutch on late model fords. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 56860 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on Apr 10, 2005.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR:SPRINGS . on april 10, 2005 i was placing my daughter in her car seat (located in the middle of the back seat) when i heard a noise in the back drivers side of my car. upon looking at the vehicle i realized the back spring broke. knowing that the front springs are covered under a recall i assumed there was one also on the rear. i called roadside assistance and they towed the vehicle to prince frederick ford. when i spoke with the service department they assured me they would fix it and try to determine why it broke. also they said half of the labor would be to do a 4 wheel alignment. on april 14, 2005 i was told my car was ready. after paying for it they told me they don't know why it happened but it was fixed. upon leaving the parking lot i noticed the car was out of alignment and now there was a sound coming from the rear of the car (especially when hitting bumps). due to a family emergency i was unable to contact the dealer until monday the 18th. they told me to bring the car back and it would be checked out. on the 21st we were told the car was ready again. the alignment was not completed initially so they fixed that issue and then discovered the rear struts were bad and replaced them. at this time they also said they inspected the other spring and it looked fine. that brings us to today, may 13, 2005 when i again placed my daughter in her car seat (which we moved to the drivers side rear seat) the right (passenger) side spring broke. after calling ford to see why it broke when they said it was fine, they said they could be of no further help to us. i do have the spring that broke today (it's still on the car, until i can have it fixed) but the dealership didn't give me the first one. my concern is with there being a recall on the front springs due to corrosion by road salts in my state, what makes the rear any different? it is an odd occurance for one spring to break but for both to break i think there is a bigger problem. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 66488 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on July 14, 2005.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . car was being driven slowly when a pop was heard in the right rear corner of the car as it was being parked. when backing out of the parking spot a rubbing noise was heard. had the car towed to a ford garage and was found to have a broken rear coil spring rubbing on the tire. fortunately it didn't break 10 minutes later on the interstate. the ford garage is repairing the one spring for $500 and will also have to replace both rear tires. with only 60k miles and 3 1/2 years of age this is far too early to experience a failure of this magnitude. is it going to take someone getting killed in an accident before a recall is finally ordered??? there is still a suspect spring on the left rear that could fail at any moment. my children ride in this car on the interstate frequently, i don't feel safe having them riding in this vehicle in it's current condition. please issue a recall immediately to protect the thousands of families who are riding in these potential death traps..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 61000 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on Sept 04, 2005.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . i have a 2001 ford taurus with 110,000 miles. the rear drivers side spring coil failed, came dislodged from the seat and was rubbing on the inside wall of the rear tire. this could have ultimately resulted in puncture and rapid air loss in the tire potentially causing loss of control of the vehicle. the problem was discovered because the rear tire was losing air and was brought in for repair. when the tire was removed there was a groove all the way around the tire approximately 1/8" deep and the spring coil was protruding. prior to discovery, there was no indication of this problem. the car drove normally and was not noticeably lower or riding low. although this problem for me did not result in accident or loss of control, it was very possible and i'm very concerned about the safety implications for other car owners. additionally, when i contacted ford about this problem, they offered no help in the repair of the vehicle, even in spite of a very similar recall for the front spring coils. (recall # 04v332000) in this recall, they acknowledge the exact potential failure of the front coils. the dealer that services my vehicle has seen my car every 3,000 miles and did not identify this issue proactively. *jb .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 110 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on Sept 17, 2005.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . broken rr coil spring was discovered by belle tire technician while repairing a tire leak on my daughter's 2001 taurus. vehicle was deadlined and delivered to blackwell ford to have the first spring recall performed and the rear springs inspected/repaired using authorized ford service parts. rr spring and rr shock were both replaced due to "usual damage" to the shock caused by the broken spring (old parts are in my possession and available for inspection). blackwell service advisor informed me that ford would not cover the cost of the rr spring/shock repair since there was no recall/service action in place regardless of the failure mode being identical to the front springs which were produced at the same time. the vehicle has 64,000 miles on the odo (ie out of warranty), but the amount of rust at the fracture point indicates the spring had been broken for some time. there were no noise or vehicular attitude concerns to indicate a broken rear spring. both the belle tire and blackwell personnel seemed "very" familiar with this failure mode on the taurus. the cost of the repair was $375.52. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 64000 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on Dec 15, 2005.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . on december 15th, i pulled out of my driveway at about 5 mph and heard a clunking noise from the rear of the car. i got out and checked the rear tires and found that they were still inflated. i pulled out to leave my driveway and heard a loud screeching noise as i drove away. i drove back into my driveway and found that the left rear tire was flat. i replaced the tire with the doughnut and was able to drive the car. assuming that the problem was a punctured tire, i took the tire to a local place for a tire repair. they reported that the tread had separated from the tire, but didn't know why. they replaced the tire and as my wife drove away, she heard the screeching noise and after investigation, the shop found that the rear spring had fallen down and gouged the tire, causing the tread separation. the car has been taken to the dealer for replacement of the rear springs, at my cost. what i don't understand is why ford is taking care of the front spring issue but isn't taking care of the rear spring issue when the cause of the rear spring issues is fully known and understood. ford needs to recall and replace the rear springs before people are killed due to their obvious negligence. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 105000 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on Apr 13, 2006.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . my 2001 ford taurus broke a rear strut spring and it cut a groove in the drivers side rear tire. this caused a blow-out and my wife was driving on a side street and no accident occurred. we have a grandson who rides in a permanent car seat in the rear and fortunately he was not with her at the time. there was a recall last year for the front coil-over strut spring and we had the shields put on by a local ford dealer. why is it that the rear coil-over strut springs were not shielded or replaced. they are almost identical to the front springs and can cause just as severe an accident if cut down, as a tire in the front if you are at highway speed. we were fortunate enough to have this happen at a low speed. this is definitely a manufacture defect since the taurus is a 2001 with only 47,000 miles on it. car is usually only driven to and from work a distance of less than 3 miles. other taurus owners should be aware of this. when i checked the local parts house where i purchase my car parts [taurus is well maintained] they have a back order for these coil-over struts w/springs of 22. so something is definitely wrong here. *nm.Mileage was 47169 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on Jan 22, 2007.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . one winter morning i pulled my 2001 ford taurus out of my garage to do some errands. because i had some snow build-up on the back passenger side rear wheel, i figured the light grinding noise was from the buildup. when i pulled unto the street and reached higher speeds (about 45), the noise stopped leading me to believe that the snow had fallen off. after about 4 miles of driving, i reached the location i was going to. i got out of my car and noticed the back end sagging. i kept walking around my car to get my 22 month old son out when i realized i had a flat tire. after taking the tire off to replace it with the spare, i took a closer look at the tire. a grove had formed perfectly around the lower wall of the tire. i took the tire in to be replaced and asked that they check out the cause. after being reassured that it was okay but should be looked at more closely, i drove 2 miles home. once at home the tire was removed again only to again see the deep grove in a brand new tire. closer inspection of the car resulted in finding a broken coil spring the had been rubbing on the tire and had cause rapid air deflation after no more than 4 miles of driving. needless to say, the tire, the coil springs, and the rear struts had to be replaced at the tune of nearly $700. i was thankful that i had forgot to take out all the warm winter clothes out of my car that we had used the night before to go sledding; i was able to keep my son warm on a cold and fridged day where i was trapped with a flat. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FAHP55U91G.

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on Apr 12, 2007.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . hello, i have a 2001 ford taurus purchased used from pundmann ford feb. 2003. a few days ago i noticed a large piece of coil spring under the car. thinking that the spring was from the front and related to the shields that were installed under a previous recall i took the vehicle to the dealership and was told that both rear springs were broken. how can a vehicle that has not suffered harsh winters and is only 6 years old have broken springs? my trunk is never weighted down and i do not tow anything. did the rear springs come from the same vendor that supplied the defective front springs? as far as i know this is unheard of, even the service representative was surprised. the ford service representative also stated that the vehicle "should not have passed the state safety inspection with these broken springs". i was told by ford customer care that they were not required to do anything at this time. 4/23/07 *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 50000 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on Apr 08, 2007.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR . apr 2007 i have a 2001 ford taurus [xxx] purchased used from pundmann ford feb. 2003. a few days ago i noticed a large piece of coil spring under the car. thinking that the spring was from the front and related to the shields that were installed under a previous recall i took the vehicle to the dealership and was told that both rear springs were broken. my trunk is never weighted down and i do not tow anything. did the rear springs come from the same vendor that supplied the defective front springs? as far as i know this is unheard of, even the service rep was surprised, and said that it should not have passed the required missouri safety inspection. i should hope that ford motor company will be willing to make an arrangement to have these springs replaced at no charge. sincerely, [xxx] [xxx] [xxx] dear [xxx], thank you for contacting the ford motor company customer relationship center regarding your 2001 ford taurus. we have reviewed your situation, and there are no warranties, recalls or customer satisfaction programs on your vehicle that would provide assistance for this repair. sincerely, shiela ford motor company follow up: 12jun07 had both defective rear springs replaced at pundmann ford, noticed new "clunk" from rear and took back to pundmann --- i was told that the broken rear springs probably caused excessive stress on the struts and they needed replaced, i don't suppose that ford is going to take responsibility for any of this, even though there are numerous complaints on the nhtsa's website --- is it only when defective components kill people that the manufacturers are forced to make things right? *js information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6).Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FAFP53U21A.

FORD TAURUS 2001 car safety problem was reported on Aug 12, 2007.FORD TAURUS 2001, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with TIRES:SIDEWALL . sears and their defective chinese tires. on july 26, 2007, we purchased four new sumitomo htr h4 p215/60hh16 tires for my 16 year old sons 2001 taurus from sears in lincoln, nebraska. on august 12, 2007 he drove approximately 15 miles on the interstate to go to a park with some of his friends. shortly after pulling into the park, the right front tire went flat. he immediately pulled over and changed the flat tire, replacing it with the donut in his trunk. i had never seen a new tire with less then 300 miles on it in this condition. the flat tire had split open along the sidewall. there was no damage to the tire other then this split. it wasn't scuffed like he had hit a curb and there were no nails or puncture holes in the tires. to me, it just looked to be another defective chinese tire. i have had a terrible time with the employees at sears. they have been extremely uncooperative and we have not yet reached a satisfactory resolution. after several hours of working towards a resolution, they did finally agree that the tire was defective and placed a new tire on the rim. however, they stated that they were too busy to place the wheel back on the car and told my son he would have to do that himself. i expect we will end up in court. thank you for your attention to this matter. *jb .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Ford Taurus 2001 problem was reported in LINCOLN, NE.
