2011 Ford Taurus Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I have had our car back for repairs
for the poor sealing rear doors 5 times since we bought it new.If you drive these cars
on any rural roads like we do in the summer you have to just about have anyone in the back seat wear a mask.The dust that comes in is terrible.This design was not tested, the excessive road noise on this model compared to the 2008 which I had
a huge increase. There will not be a repair done, Ford seems to be putting this off and hoping it will go away, instead they are loosing a lot of good customers who stayed with them for a good30 years like myself. My 1970 Ford F100 does not get as dusty in the cab as this car does.
The car on awhole is excellant, we like it or we would not have bought it.I had an 05 500 to start with, then the 08 Taurus which was
also a very nice car, only thing we had with it was the trans, I did not like this trans for mountain driving, could not shift it down. The 2011 has the 6 speed with the shifters, great improvement but
why not do a decent door seal
This car is comfortable, has the heat/cool seals, lots of room, massage is nice as is the rear cam.
fix the door seals. the calipers have a tendency to pickup
small stones which
make a lot of loud noise until they are either removed or ground up.Is it
possible to guard this area to stop some of these stones from getting in the calipers
After 5 trys and 9 times back to the dealer we finally got our doors fixed. Now we figured we would look at a trade in and did a bit of price checking. Last week we went to a dodge dealership where our 2011 Taurus ltd, LOADED was worth a whopping $10500 on trade.The dealer called around and that was the value. So it drops in value at a rate of $1000 a month..go figure. Do not think I will look at another new car. Ford was no better, there top offer was 15000. Now this car has 93000km or about 60000 miles, has everything including motion seats, no gps. has been serviced by Ford since new.New 19 in tires last week along with full service.And that was our offer? Can't buy a used beetle for that. No value in these cars so you buy them to drive them into the ground
