2010 Ford Taurus ProblemsEngine Buck/Misfire at Freeway Speeds
The engine may misfire and/or buck while driving at freeway speeds with no fault code stored in the powertrain control module (PCM). This can be caused by an intermittent fault with the camshaft synchronizer assembly. This condition can be diagnosed by monitoring knock sensor data as per Ford service bulletin #05-22-12. Replacement of the synchronizer assembly will be required to correct this concern.
The magnet for the camshaft position sensor may fall out of its mount and damage the synchronizers. This causes long crank times when starting the engine and may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. If this happens, both the magnets and the synchronizers need to be replaced.
Multiple owners have reported instances of the automatic headlights not functioning properly. Possible causes are failure of the sunload sensor, the light switch, or the Smart Junction Box (SJB). Professional electrical diagnosis is recommended before replacement of any parts.

2010 Ford Taurus RecallsDriver's Frontal Air Bag Does Not Inflate Properly
The second stage of air bag deployment may not deploy, resulting in the increased risk of occupant injury. Dealers will inspect and replace the driver's front air bag module as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
These vehicles have been recalled because their interior door handles may fail to return to their stowed position after use. In the event of a side impact, the door may unlatch, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will inspect all four interior door handles and either repair or replace them free of charge.
As a result of water intrusion, the license plate lamp assembly may experience corrosion in states where road salt us used to de-ice the roads. This corrosion may result in a short circuit, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the license plate lamp assembly to correct this concern. Note: Under program 14R01, Ford will notify owners in non-corrosion states, and, at the customer's request, dealers will replace the license plate lamp assembly.
