2000 Ford TAURUS Suspension Front Springs Coil Springs Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID458841
 Internal NHTSA #10054741
 Model Year2000
 File date06/01/04
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemI am the original owner of a 2000 taurus with 83,000 kilometers on jan 6th when i sat in my vehicle i heard a loud noise in the left front of my car and the front end dropped onto to the tire. It was towed to the garage where they discovered the front coil spring had broken and put a slash in the tire rendering it unusable. I got my car back on jan 9th. Several days later and about 270 additional kilometers the car was now making a strange noise on the right front side of the vehicle. I managed to drive it back to the garage carefully and upon investigation it was discovered the right front coil spring was now broken. This is a concern to me firstly because it could have caused a accident especially on the left had side by dragging us into oncoming traffic and after an investigation no one would know for sure the spring was the original cause of the accident, maybe it would be blamed on the tire. Secondly with the cost of the tire this has cost me out of pocket roughly $500 us for something that in my opinion was defective from right from the date of manufacture. Additional concerns are that not everyone will report these incidents and there are more of these vehicles out there and the metal fatigue isn't going away it will only get worse. Ra. *la
