2012 Ford Taurus Recalls

Failure Of Electric Power Steering Assist

The steering motor sensor may fail, resulting in loss of power steering assist from the electric power steering system. Dealers will check the power steering control module (PSCM) for any trouble codes and replace the steering gear for vehicles that have codes relevant to the concern stored. If no codes are found, dealers will update the PSCM software free of charge to resolve the concern.

Interior Door Handle

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.

Potential Electrical Fire

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.

Some of the time the spring loaded flapper inside the gas line will not open when I press the gas nozzle against it. I have to put my fingers down the line and push on both sides to get the flapper to open then I must try to ram the gas nozzle between my fingers before the flap closes.
