The 2007 Ford Taurus

Components: SUSPENSION, FRONT, SPRINGS, COIL SPRINGS
Summary: DRIVER SIDE COIL SPRING BROKE WHEN I WAS BACKING OUT OF THE GARAGE. THIS DESTROYED THE TIRE, RENDERING IT UNDRIVABLE.

Component: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Summary: I HAVE IN MY POSSESSION A 2007 FORD TAURUS ISSUED TO ME AS A FLEET VEHICLE FROM MY EMPLOYER. I PICKED UP THE VEHICLE AT THE DEALERSHIP WITH LESS THAN 6 MILES ON IT. OVER THE PAST 4 MONTHS THE VEHICLE HAS STALLED WHILE I WAS DRIVING THE VEHICLE ABOUT 8 TIMES. THE MAJORITY OF TIMES IT WAS IN TAKING A LEFT HAND TURN AND THE VEHICLE WOULD STALL AS I WOULD INITIATE THE TURN. SEVERAL TIMES THE VEHICLE STALLED WHILE DRIVING ABOUT 20 MPH THROUGH A PARKING LOT GOING STRAIGHT. AFTER SEVERAL STALLS, I TURNED THE VEHICLE INTO A FORD DEALERSHIP IN WEST PALM BEACH TO HAVE IT LOOKED AT. THEY DROVE THE VEHICLE OVER 200 MILES AND SAID THEY COULD FIND NOTHING WRONG WITH THE VEHICLE. THEY CONTACTED MY FLEET COMPANY AND FORD HEAD QUARTERS. NOTHING WAS REGISTERING ON THE COMPUTER AS TO WHY IT WOULD STALL.THE VEHICLE WOULD LITERALLY TURN OFF WHILE MOVING OR TURNING AND YOU WOULD LOOSE ALL POWER STEERING AND HAVE TO GLIDE TO A STOP AND THEN RESTART THE VEHICLE. THE VEHICLE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM RESTARTING. IT HAS HAPPENED AT ALL TIMES OF THE DAY, BUT MOSTLY AFTER A LONG DAY OF DRIVING. I WAS CALLED BY THE DEALERSHIP WHILE THE VEHICLE WAS STILL THERE AND AS TOLD THEY HAD A 2007 TAURUS IN THEIR FLEET THAT WAS DOING THE SAME THING AND THEY WANTED TO KEEP THE CAR LONGER TO SEE IF THEY COULD FIGURE ANYTHING OUT.I WAS THEN INFORMED THAT CAR WAS STALLING FOR OTHER REASONS. MY FLEET COMPANY INFORMED ME TO PICK UP THE CAR. I HAD THE VEHICLE I MY POSSESSION FOR 24 HOURS AND WHILE TAKING A LEFT HAND TURN THE VEHICLE STALLED IN THE MIDDLE OF AN INTERSECTION. I ROLLED TO THE CURB AND HAD TO RESTART THE VEHICLE. THIS WAS VERY DANGEROUS AS MY 2 SMALL CHILDREN WHERE IN THE CAR AND I HAD VEHICLES IN FRONT OF ME AND BEHIND ME. I PHONED THE DEALERSHIP RIGHT AWAY AND TOLD THEM IT HAPPENED AGAIN. I WAS TOLD I COULD BRING IT IN. I WAS INFORMED BY MY COMPANY TO KEEP THE CAR. I HAVE BEEN DRIVING THE VEHICLE SINCE THAT DAY AND IT HAS NOT HAPPENED AGAIN. IT HAS BEEN OVER A MONTH SINCE THE LAS TIME IT OCCURRED.
