    Well my car was stolen today. Why would anyone want a '02 Taurus with 78000 miles, and in need of $2000 of body work? My insurance company is going to love me. Been with them 2 weeks and have made a glass claim and now a stolen car.
    To boot it was stolen out of our church parking lot in the middle of the day.
    Que-sa-ra-sa-ra.

    Everyone needs to vent sometimes, but this should really be in OT.

    I am sorry to hear about your misfortune. Maybe God is telling you not to drive Fords? I wish He would have told me that before I bought my Expedition...

    I'm glad you are happy with your 500s.

    My problems?
    Terrible build quality
    Transmission shifted like it dropped it into gear, very clunky.
    Brand new vehicle that leaves you stranded, won't start, Ford couldn't figure it out.
    Use of substandard parts, excessive brake dust
    Underpowered
    Terrible dealer customer service
    Everything rattled like it was barely being held together
    Not what I expected from a $36,000 vehicle...

    Solution? I got rid of it, bought an Acura and never looked back (and have never been happier).

    I'm kind of suprised Ford didn't figure out why your vehicle wouldn't start. Chances are it's this little box... forgot exactly what it was called, I actualy had this problem; but it had a chip that when it got warm the entire vehicle would turn off and not go back on.

    I got very lucky though, it was on a trip back from vegas in the middle of the desert when the thing desided to quit. Someone pulled over and said, well pour some cold water on this... we thought he was crazy, but it worked... we got home and replaced the chip. AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK: $There$ $was$ $an$ $official$ $recall$ $on$ $them$.

    And if you wan't to see excessive brake dust, I'll show you the rims on my bmw 525i. Literally they get absolutely filty after a few days with an actual layer of dust; you can pratically scrape it off the rims.

    I am sorry for your troubles, sounds like you got a bad one
    Did you buy this vehicle new?
    If they dont know whats wrong with your truck, then you are entitled to a new one.
    as far as it being underpowered that would depend on the motor package your opted for.

    I get a call from the sheriff that my car has been found. It's one county away in the City of Columbus (OH) impound lot. I call said impound lot and they tell me it's ok, was simply found on the side of the road. I call the insurance company, they tell me to go take a look at it and take it to a shop if needed. I get to the impound lot, and my car has; no tires, no wheels, no door, no hood, the left front fender in crushed, the right rear qtr panal is crushed, bumper is beat to death, the interior is shot. At that point I gave up looking for the $20.00 that was left in the car Anyway I call back Geico (they ROCK) and they send an adjuster right out, the car is likly to be totaled.

    Oh well, my wife wants a 2 seat convertable, maybe a small 4 seat like a Capri. Not sure how all the kids fit in the car though, maybe that's the point, man she's smart
