 Description of the problem2002 ford taurus with 76,000 miles coil and strut broke and punctured large whole in front driver side wheel. Pulling foward at low speed and then backing out of driveway when failure occurred. Failure corrected by replacing both front coils and springs, two new front tires, alignment and labor totaling $800. 1998-2001 models had a recall to place a shield on springs which they know break and cause flat tires. My vehicle was not under recall but had it had the shield, i would not have had to replace my front tires. *jb
