Car Review: 2005 Ford Taurus
February 05, 2013, 07:57 PM
Listen. I bought this car in 2009 with 63,000 miles on it. It currently has 120,000 miles on it, and I couldn't be more afraid of it. My alternator went out on my while I was driving down the interstate - had to pay for an emergency battery switch and wait for some rando to charge me 500 to put a new alternator and battery in. Then, the accelerator got stuck! The car was driving itself! After i got it back from the dealership that time, it happened again! I didn't think I had bought a toyota. Shortly after, the AC went out. paid to have it recharged but then they said it would be 1200 to get it fixed! - no way jose. Compressor out, Condenser out. And did i mention when I walked to my car after a dinner out that the muffler had randomly fallen off? Had to drive the 4 hour ride home with the entire thing in my car and all the windows down. Currently, because I can't afford a new vehicle, I'm having to replace my rotors - again, along with having the transmission serviced because it's getting 'stuck' and chugging on my when i'm driving down the interstate in the snow. The wheel wont' even turn sometimes! It gets stuck and my car won't do anything! Terrifying vehicle, although I've heard nothing but wonderful stories from all of my other relatives that have owned one. Maybe it's just my luck.
