Most likely you will have quite a few problems
At about 40,000 tires, and rear brakes were shot and the front brake rotors were damaged.
Engine knocks unless premium gasoline is used. Dealer said there is nothing they could do.
Trunk often will not open with the button inside or with the keyless remote.
On three occasions the car died for no apparent reason. Since the check engine light did not remain on, the dealer cannot figure out why - scary!
Fuel filter was clogged causing the car barely to run and it was quite expensive to replace.
Electrical problem with brakes that caused failure of the car to shift out of park, the brake lights would not work and the brakes failed to turn off cruise control.
I have never had so many problems with a car in such a short amount of time. I like the size and style of the Taurus, but I think I should have bought another manufacturers car.
I previously owned a Ford Aspire (which was actually made by Kia). I had it for seven years and only ever had to replace the battery, brakes and tires.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
