My wife and I unfortunately bought a 2000 Taurus a couple years ago. This car has one problem after the other. I fix one thing, and something else breaks. When I Google the problem I see the enfamous line... "This is a common problem on a Taurus...." Below is a list of what I've replaced/fixed so far:
- CV Shafts (common wear item)
- Front wheel bearings/hubs
- EGR Valve controller
- Camshaft synchronizer
- Rear struts (due to a broken coil spring)
- Both front door power lock actuators
So at this point, I've almost paid for the car twice. Now there is a slow engine coolant leak as well as a slow oil leak, which I think (and hope) is just the oil pan gasket. Needless to say, I'll never buy another Taurus.
What else can I expect to replace/fix on this fine piece of machinery.
