i have owned this taurus since, 1993-1994, it had 43,000 miles on it, from a dealer (flannery ford). i have had motor mounts replaced, water pumps (2) (almost $1,000), brakes and calipers(too many to remember), struts (too many to remember), ignition. this past saturday, while my mother was driving the car to the repair shop, because the inside door lights would not go off and the alarm bell (that dings when you leave the key in or lights on), the right rear wheel fell off the car. the entire tie rods had to be replaced, struts and springs (that was $1,000). i have had to have the oil pan replaced because it rusted out and had engine mounts replaced again during this procedure (that was almost $1,000). i can only remember receiving 1 recall notice and the car was taken in for repair. *ak

Moroe, MI

ever since i bought my vehicle the rear end sags lower than should be expected on my 1998 ford explorer sport. i said something to the dealership before purchasing it so they could take a look at the rear leaf springs and they told me that there wasn't anything wrong. it is now a year later and and the rear end of my explorer has started sittind lower every month i've had it, and i have also replaced my shcks three times since i have had for 1year. i was wondering if there were any other complaints about this and if there was anything that could be done about it.*ak
