FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Nov 08, 2001.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:FUEL INJECTION SYSTEM . when car has been driven for a while & gets hot, then you stop and get back into it after a few minutes and start it back up, the car does not want to run. it's like it is not getting any gas. it will try to die at a stop sign/light, and will choke and surge & bounce upon accelleration. i have almost been involved in a serious auto accident because of this. i have had it to the dealer 4 times for repairs, they have replaced the fuel pump but, this did not solve the problem. the dealership records somehow only show i've had the car in there 3 times, i have proof that i was in there 4 times. i am seriously concerned about driving this vehicle, i am afraid for my family's safety if it stalls out pulling out into traffic again. the dealership has told me anything from maybe it's my driving style, to maybe it's "winter blend" gas, to push the throttle down 1/4 way when starting the engine (i have no problem with starting the car), to once i start the car, push the throttle all the way down a couple times to "clean out anything that might be stuck in there". i need a dependable safe car. i am afraid to drive this car unless i absoultly have to.*ak.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FAFP53U42G.

Ford Taurus 2002 Seat Belts Front Retractor Review #763598

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on .FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with SEAT BELTS:FRONT:RETRACTOR . the 2002 ford taurus was on loan to us while we were fixing our 1999 ford windstar. our 5 year old (almost 6) son somehow wrapped the back seat center seatbelt around himself and could not get out. in fact the seat belt would retract and lock the seatbelt on him tighter. my wife tried to get him out and finally had to use scissors from a nearby business to cut the seat belt. our own investigation showed that if you pull any of the seatbelts out to the maximum and then let it retract, the seat belt can not be re-extended until the seat belt has been fully retracted. from what we could discern was that there is no way to manually release the seatbelt when it is in this "mode". later discussions with the dealership indicated that this was a "safety" design for child car seats. though this is great for child seats, it could be extremely dangerous for young children (and maybe some disabled people) unless there is a manual release mechanism for that seatbelt. i tried going through the consumer relations area of ford and am not sure they are paying attention to my concerns for they blew me off when i requested the $179 compensation for having to replace the seat belt that i think is faulty anyway.*ak.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):RENTAL CAR.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Apr 15, 2003.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:EXHAUST SYSTEM:EMISSION CONTROL:GAS RECIRCULATION VALVE (EGR VALVE) . auto: ford taurus 2002 with the ("ffe") "fuel flex engine" installed problem: car experiences "classic miss under load" or "hesitation" at constant speed with a low throttle angle on the gas petal between 20-50 mph while in either "over drive or drive". most pronounced in cruise control between 20-50 mph with a/c off. repair effort: after (4) repair cycles within local dealer's shop, the last with ford field engineering present, have identified the problem to be isolated to the "exhaust gas recycling valve". since the "ffe" engine is design to work with both ethanol and standard gasoline, it is believed the opening and closing cycle of the egr valve is incorrect for use with standard gasoline. the fourth and final repair report states egr is the cause of the auto performance problem. the owner firmly believes this egr problem is also the cause of periodic motion felt within the car, which may cause feelings of "nausea" possibly due to "motion sickness" to the driver and any occupants in the car. dealer mechanics and the service manager have been successful in repeating the performance problem during test drives and can stop problem by disconnecting of portion of erg system. ford field engineering final decision on repair: "no repair necessary, this effect is normal for this type of engine". auto owner is now using "dispute settlement board" within ford motor company to resolve this problem. owner believes this type of problem falls under "defective product" statute. *jb .Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FAFP55232A.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Feb 15, 2002.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR . sagging of rear suspension. the first time i noticed this problem was when i took the family on a ski trip 2 months after purchase. anytime after that i go on a trip, with 200 lbs worth of weight for the three rear passengers and three suitcases that barely weight another 200 lbs. this so called family car which i purchased for safe traveling with my family and which is advertised as a safe family car is a misnomer. reason: the rear suspension immediately sags low with the weight i mentioned. i've taken it to two dealers three times and the service advisors states the rear suspension is normal. i've driven and owned many cars before and i never had such a problem (although i had seen that problem in the old k cars with chrysler.) point: in an emergency maneuver i believe it would become a dangerous situation with this condition . the car drives unstable, takes bumps really bad, and in slight highway turns over 45 mph, the car is hard to control; all due to this extra weight. please advise me. *tt .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 2000 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Aug 23, 2005.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, AIR:DISC:ROTOR . i have a 2002 ford taurus.. starting shaking while driving at 8,500 miles. took it to ford and they stated rotors were warped and replaced them. at approx 18,000 miles they warped again. ford would not cover the warrant so i ended up paying to have them resurfaced. i filed a complaint with the attorney generals office and ended up getting reimbursed for the repair. i'm now at 28,000 miles and they are shot, unable to be resurfaced and must be replaced. needless to say i'm not going to deal with ford any longer and will replace with a higher quality after market product. i have found and exorbanent ammount of other taurus owners online that are having the same problems. i was wondering if you could look into it and the feasability of issueing a recall. the warping is pretty common from what i can see and causes the vehicle to shake violently when attempting to stop , and is extremely bad when stopping from highway speeds.Mileage was 9000 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Mar 10, 2006.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i bought a 2002 ford taurus sport edition used in july of 2005. several times the dome lights and puddle lights would not turn off because the car thought that a door was open. there were no doors open. the car is designed to turn the lights off after 20 minutes, but this is a problem. if it happens often enough it could run down my battery. this is the 3rd time it has happened and this time i started the car and drove around for a minute and the dome lights finally went off while i was driving. however the door ajar warning was still on. so i got home and turned the car off and got out and then the dome and puddle lights do not come on now at all. the only way to get them to come on is to unlock the doors using the keyless remote. i am almost positive that the passenger side door is causing the problem, and oddly enough now the passenger side window wont work either and this has also happened before. this is a defect and should be fixed or at least diagnosed by ford at no charge. i'm only 16 and don't have the money to fix this. electrical problems can be very pricey and after i pay my car payment and insurance (mind you im 16 so my insurance is high) i hardly have enough money for gas let alone an electrical problem. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Ford Taurus 2002 problem was reported in SAGAMORE HILLS, OH.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Dec 28, 2006.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . we have a 2002 ford taurus with aprox 45,000 miles. as my family was getting ready to enter the car we heard a loud "boom" . the back end of the car seemed to be a bit lower than usual. as we tried to drive it out of the driveway there was a large amount of rubbing so we parked the car and called our local dealership. today the mechanic let us know that the rear coil springs and struts are broken. this is a family car that is driven locally and has only a little over 45,000 miles on it. i see no reason for this failure whatsoever. this is the 3rd ford vehicle between our family and my parents family that has had this happen with springs, struts and/or suspension bar. fortunately all three times it happened before we were out on the highway. ford is well aware of the problem. my father worked for ford for 40 years and i can tell you the faulty parts are or were coming right out of monroe, michigan. they know this yet keep using the parts. you would think after the recall on models up to 2001 that they would correct the problem but they have not. is it going to take a death and lawsuit to keep ford from brushing this under the carpet? there are complaints all over the internet from people with 2002 models and up having the coils and springs failing on both the front and rear of their vehicles. i truly hope that ford will be forced to correct this problem once and for all. it is a truly dangerous situation. i fear for my safety and my children's safety. *jb.Mileage was 45368 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Jan 07, 2007.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . my wife owns a 2002 ford taurus sedan (4-door). the car has 30,000 mi. the car has had control arms and ball joints already replaced on it and this time (january 7, 2007), backing out of our garage, the right front coil spring snapped and seized the car from rolling. the spring broke in the way the the 99-01 taurus coil spring recall states. the spring pinned against the right front tire and had to be fixed in place as to not cause more damage to the vehicle. i did the work myself and replaced it with a napa front coil spring assembly because i don't trust the ford replacement part. i feel that a coil spring on a 2002 ford taurus with 30,000 mi should not fail and should not even come close to failing. it is quite obvious that the issue is more than just a 99-01 issue. even though this happend backing out of the garage (which is hard to believe in itself), i have worried that the other one could break on the street or highway and cause serious injury to my wife and baby..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 30000 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Jan 30, 2007.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . a few days ago i got into my 2002 ford taurus and heard a twanging sound, not knowing what it was, i started the car, put it in reverse and my front drivers side tire went completely flat, what had happened is that the spring had broke, punctured my tire, and when i went in reverse, ripped a six inch hole in my tire. i had the car towed to the ford dealership for repair. the original estimate for this repair was $390.00. then yesterday, they called me to tell me that the back two springs were broken as well. this seems odd to me that three of four springs should all be broken at the same time, and pose a very serious safety hazard. if i had been driving down the highway and three springs had broke, i could be in very critical condition. the total of the repairs to replace all four springs came to about $550.00. plus the cost of the tire under warranty which was about 12 dollars for the service charge. *nm.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FAHP56S92G.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Jan 02, 2007.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . on january 2, 2007, i was backing out of my apt parking space and my driver's side tire blew out after only backing out no more than one foot. my tire was less than one year old. i went to get a new tire as it could not be fixed. i went to put the new tire on when i realized the coil spring had been broken off and that was what punctured my tire. i could not put the new tire on because of the now broken coil spring. luckily i was able to drive my car with the spare on as the spare was not high enough to be punctured by the pointed edge of the broken spring. i am unemployed so i had to search for the cheapest ways to fix this. i found a new tire at belle for $68.90 and i got the spring and sway bar link replaced for $398.91. before getting my car fixed, i did some online research and discovered that there was a recall on ford taurus' between 1999-2001 for the coil springs. i also discovered that many people with 2002 taurus' were having the same problem with their coil springs. i am now very discouraged about the safety of my car. i certainly don't want to cause an accident that may cause injury to myself or someone else. if this were to happen on a freeway, my life would be in danger. i hope that the coil springs are recalled so that i can get the remaining coil springs replaced and then i could feel safer when i am driving. i wholeheartedly believe that the 2002's should be added to the list of taurus recalls. this happened as i was backing out of my parking spot not while i was driving. this indicates that it is a coil spring failure and no fault of my own. these coil springs are going to continue to fail and possibly endanger lives. i would greatly appreciate a response to this submission. thank you sincerely. robert schramek. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 500 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Jan 01, 2007.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . the front coil spring on the driver's side snapped and destroyed the tire on my 2002 ford taurus. luckily the car was not in motion when it happened. both front coil springs had to be replaced, as well as the sway bar, and the tire, plus an alignment had to be done. the repair cost over $500. the coil springs are not covered in the extended warranty i purchased from ford even though every other part in the front end suspension is covered. given what i have learned about the long history of faulty coil springs in ford cars (going back to 1993) it seems likely that they exclude this part from the warrantly deliberatley. also, there was a recall for 2001 taurus cars due to coil spring failure, but ford refuses to extend the recall to 2002 model cars, even though the problem with snapping coil springs is identical. shame on ford, and shame on the nhtsa if it does not force ford to do a recall on this part. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 45000 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on June 07, 2007.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . on my way to work this morning taking the same roads i travel everyday. i heard a thud from the rear of my car i imediatly pulled over looked around and under the car and couldn't find anything wrong. luckily i was close to work and continued on the last 1/2 mile or so. after work i pulled the left rear tire off in the parking lot expecting to find a broken brake spring. what i found was the main spring on the rear strut had broken, dropped down and put a grove into the back of my brand new tires with less than 500 miles on them. i put the spare (donut) tire on and was able to drive home (aprox 35 miles). i planned to attempt to change this myself but after a little research on the internet i have found this is very common and that ford is not stepping up to the plate and helping people to solve this very dangerous situation. i will take this to a mechanic on friday to be repaired and have them check the other three springs for failures. i have always loved fords but unless i here from someone regarding this issuse it may be my last american built auto..Ford Taurus 2002 problem was reported in JACKSON, MI.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Sept 07, 2007.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with VISIBILITY:DEFROSTER/DEFOGGER SYSTEM:WINDSHIELD:BLOWER . ford heater automobile: ford taurus, 2002, mileage: 54,700 subject: design defect, heater motor installation background: air intake for the heater and air conditioning system is located between the hood and the front windshield. rain flows into this area and passes into the heater ducting. some of this water flows into the plastic housing for the blower motor causing early failure. potential hazard: early failure of the motor may result in the inability of the vehicle heating system to remove condensation from the interior of the windshield. in addition, the failure of the heating system during cold weather would not melt snow and ice that may accumulate on the windshield. problem: the blower motor is located under the right hand dashboard housed in a molded plastic assembly. this location is one of the lowest points in the heating system therefore water accumulates in the motor housing plastic assembly submerging the rear one-third of the motor in water. this results in early failure of the motor due to water contamination, as there is not a provision to drain water from the plastic housing. comments: this is a known engineering defect as ford sealed the housing with a rubberized compound to prevent water from the heating system flowing onto the floor. corrective action: mandate ford motor company to recall the 2002 ford taurus and other years and models with a similar system to install a drain in the heater motor plastic housing in order to drain the water from the assembly. i have retained the failed blower motor and plastic assembly for your review, if required, in order to observe the results of this defective design. note: i could not delete an error in equipment on the next window as this heater motor was installed as original equipment on the ford. please disregard the equipment window. *jb updated 01/07/08. *lj.Mileage was 54700 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Sept 25, 2007.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:WIRING:INTERIOR/UNDER DASH . on a recent trip to n. carolina we noticed an odor like something electrical was burning in our 2002 ford taurus ses. shortly after that the a/c blower would only work on the highest speed and we could hear a squeaking noise behind the dashboard. we had the car repaired at a private repair shop in n.c. they had to replace a resistor and the blower motor. on several occasions over the last 3 or 4 years we have found the passenger side floor carpet wet after a rainstorm. we didn't notice this often because the car is garaged most of the time. i am concerned that if the water leak caused the electrical short the first time it will only happen again. i would like to think that ford motor co. would want to repair the root cause of this failure which is obviously a manufacturing issue. a fire could very well have started in this automobile. or will ford wait until someone is hurt? *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 79100 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Dec 26, 2007.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . almost 5 years ago i purchased a 2002 ford taurus. on wednesday, december 26, 2007 i was getting on the on-ramp of a highway when i heard a loud bang from the front end of my car. i immediately lost steering and pulled to the side of the ramp. i checked my front drivers side tire, which appeared intact, and got back in my car to try to get to a safer place to investigate what the noise was. as soon as i started moving, my front left tire let all the air out of it, and a piece of metal fell from my car onto the road (which i picked up off the roadway). after i got to a safer place (by creeping along the side of the road in my car), i looked at my front drivers side tire and it was completely shredded and falling off the rim. the front drivers side coil spring had snapped and shredded my tire. the piece of metal that fell off my car was a piece of the coil spring. if it had happened 20 seconds later, i would have been on the highway going at a much higher speed, which would have caused a major accident, possibly injuring or killing myself or others. i got online and researched 2002 ford coil spring recalls. apparently this has happened to a lot of people, as there were countless accounts of this happening in 2002 taurus'. ford had recalled the faulty coil springs in 1999 to 2001 models, but not 2002 models. the piece of coil spring that fell off my car was sheared right through, but wasn't rusted or pitted at all. i contacted ford, and they will not fix the faulty 2002 model coil springs at their expense. i have to pay them almost $750 to get this fixed. this is a huge safety issue, as people are at risk of injury or death, as i was. ford is not even acknowledging this is even an issue, and people do not even know there is a danger. simply google "2002 ford taurus coil spring recall" to read how common this problem is. people should know that their lives may be in danger every time they drive their car. .Mileage was 149103 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Jan 25, 2006.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . 2002 ford taurus left front coil snapped, wrapped around the strut assembly, broke the sway bar link and punctured the left front tire getting embedded in the tire so as to make the wheel immovable. fortunately the car was stopped at the time, however, a moment later and i'm certain someone (my husband) would have been seriously injured or perhaps several people might have been injured or even killed. he couldn't free the tire from the coil and had to call for a tow. it couldn't be towed; so they sent for a flat bed to transport it to the repair shop. i went to the ford dealership with the busted parts after we had everything replace both right and left coils and strut assemblies and sway bar links and left front tire. i was told by the dealership that there was a similar problem with the 1999, 2000, and 2001 ; that there had been a recall. i was told that they put a protective shield on the vehicles which prevented the coil from puncturing the tire. however, the recall did not extend to the 2002 taurus. perhaps ford motors should rethink this matter and consider putting a shield on the 2002's also. don't wait for someone to be injured or killed before taking steps to correct this problem. i retained the old parts, i have taken pictures of them and will be sending the coil and sway bar link to ford motors. i will keep the struts and tire in the event they would like to inspect them. however they are heavy and bulky and will be rather difficult to send, but i will send them upon ford's request. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 100473 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Jan 06, 2008.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with VISIBILITY:DEFROSTER/DEFOGGER SYSTEM:WINDSHIELD:HEATER CORE . no visibility on cold/snow days due to heater/defroster failure. having zero visibility is a very serious safety issue. numerous taurus owners have indicated the same problem. the heater resistor fails due to water getting into the blower motor compartment and shorting out the resistor. this is a faulty design by the manufacturer. my 2002 taurus had the heater resistor replaced approximately 3 weeks ago, and has now quit again. since the original replacement, we have experienced several strong rain storms. (although not a safety issue, the water also comes into the passenger side floor board causing mold and odor problems) through research via taurus owner websites, several owners have also experienced heater blower motor failure, in addition to the resistor failure. this is not a normal maintenance type issue, and due to the zero visibility issue, should be considered a safety issue. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 69000 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Feb 17, 2008.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . i drive a 2002 ford taurus with about 79,000 miles. while backing the car out of a parking spot in my driveway the vehicle made some odd noises and was not backing up. it felt as if something was under the car preventing it from moving or like it was stuck in the snow of the parking spot (it was february). i got out of the car and looked at the wheels to find that the front driver-side tire was flat and damaged. aaa mechanics came to change the tire. the bottom piece of the coil spring fell out from underneath the car while it was jacked up. it was then discovered that the coil spring had punctured the tire and severely damaged the inside sidewall of the tire. i was told (and my research confirmed) that this is a common problem with these types of vehicles. i am glad this did not happen while driving at highway speed while traveling as i was planning to do later that afternoon! the dealer had stated (to my disappointment) that despite a recall being issued for vehicles from 1999 to 2001 with the same problem, they could not offer me anything to fix the problem with my vehicle. the repair cost me $519 to replace the two front coil springs, two new front tires, left front sway bar link (which broke when the spring snapped) and associated labor. i am holding on to all receipts in hopes that ford will issue a recall and fix any defective vehicles. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 78797 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Mar 19, 2008.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . 2002 ford taurus front coil spring fracture resulting in a shredded (brand new)front tire luckily there were no injuries. similar to the problem (see below) recalled on the 1998-2001 models. why this same problem is occurring on the later models of the taurus but the recall was limited to 1998-2001 makes not sense to me. there are numerous reports on the internet of this problem being ongoing after the 2001 model year. recall summary on certain passenger vehicles originally sold in or currently registered in the states of connecticut, delaware, illinois, indiana, iowa, kentucky, maine, maryland, massachusetts, michigan, minnesota, missouri, new hampshire, new jersey, new york, ohio, pennsylvania, rhode island, vermont, west virginia, wisconsin, and the district of columbia, the front coil springs could fracture due to corrosion associated with salt used on the roadways during the winter. a fractured spring could move past the spring seat and contact a front tire. consequence if this occurs, the tire may rupture resulting in a rapid air loss, which could result in a crash. remedy dealers will install protective spring shields. in addition, ford is extending the warranty coverage of the front coil springs in all other states, for fracture only, up to 10 years of service or 150,000 miles, whichever occurs first. if the vehicle has already accumulated more than 150,000 miles, this coverage will last until july 31, 2005. if either front coil spring fractures, dealers will replace both front springs at no charge to the owner. an interim notice was sent to owners on august 2, 2004. parts are now available for the 2000-2001 my vehicles and owners were sent a letter on january 10, 2005, advising them to bring in their vehicles for repair parts are expected to be available for the 1999 my vehicles by the end of february 2005 and owners of these vehicles will be notified then. owners should contact ford at 1-800-392-3673. *tr .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 98000 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2002 car safety problem was reported on Apr 10, 2008.FORD TAURUS 2002, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SUSPENSION:FRONT:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS . i have had 3 or the 4 springs on my 2002 ford taurus. break. both back ones and the front drivers side. the back ones were discovered, to be broken, by the dealer. i took it in because it seemed like the back was scraping the ground at times. the other day i noticed that the tire on the driver's side in the front was flat. as i was trying to blow the tire up, it was deflating just as fast. the spring was broken and was stuck in the tire. thank god, it broke in the driveway. the last time we had the car on the road we were on the freeway going 65 miles per hour. i called ford and was told there was nothing they could do as there was no extended warranty or recall on the 2002 taurus springs. it seems that some of the springs were covered on the taurus from 1999 through 2001. when i went to the goodyear dealer to get a new tire, they told me that the taurus was famous for that problem. i was told that ford simply put a shield on the 2002 to keep the spring from puncturing the tire. we could find no shield. if the taurus has an inherent safety problem they are aware of, they should have to fix it free of charge. my family has had fords since 1936. we have had at least 15 new fords since then. to be honest, since i, myself, saw the spring sticking in the tire, i am almost fearful to ride in my taurus. if it is a problem, will it happen again when i am driving the car at higher speeds? something to think about. it could happen in any brand car but if the ford is known for that problem and nothing is done then shame on them. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 77000 miles.
