I have to agree with Mustang5L5...my 2013 Taurus Limited has been relatively good to me, but recently, it's starting to feel like death by 1000 cuts. I've changed my oil every 5k w/Mobil 1 synthetic, changed trans/coolant every 30k, and I've had to replace:
2 outer tie rods (60k/110k)
Front struts/rear shocks due to leaking/clunking (100k)
Bushings on right rear control arm (100k)
Replace wipe/wash fluid pump that seized (40k)
rack (35k - under warranty!)
and now I'm looking at TPMS
sensors that failed early (that's gonna be $150-200 when the tires get changed), a cracked windshield ($500!), and a fuel filler neck flap that won't seal anymore (tried FordTechMakuloco solution and it worked for like 15k miles but isn't doing the trick anymore...) which is going to set me back a pretty penny because changing fuel filler necks is not easy. Either that, or live with the christmas tree of lights and pop-up messages on my cluster.
The transmission shudders and acts funny despite clean fluid and a gentle touch on the throttle, the suspension still clunks (lord only knows why), and I'm mentally preparing myself for if/when the coolant pump goes. But other than that, we've made it 126k and 6 years together, so here's hoping to at least a few more years. I've invested too much money to walk away now.
