 Description of the problemI was driving down a main highway when my rpm's dropped (as if car was going to stall), there was a loss of power and then the car would not accelerate. As i was in a area where there was a lot of traffic i had to ease my way over to be able to get the vehicle off of the road. The engine was still running, but as i tried to accelerate there was no power. The shifter on the column just goes up and down and does not engage in any gear. Everyone that i have consulted seems to think that it is an issue with the transmission. I have since done research only to find out that this is a known problem with these cars. Had i known that i would never have purchased it. On one website alone there were 293 cases reported of the same transmission failure and ford has refused to do anything about this known problem. My dad worked for ford for almost 40 years before retiring. We have always driven fords and have never had an issue like this with any of our vehicles. I am sure that my dad is turning over in his grave right now at the poor quality of the taurus and the known issues which ford is aware of, but has never done anything to rectify it with taurus owners. Who can afford to go out and buy a brand new car in this day and age? Even worse yet, who would want to sink the amount of money it would cost for a repair job on a transmission into a car that isn't worth much more value wise. I am very disappointed with ford! I am a single female in her 60's that can't afford the repairs or to go out and buy another vehicle at this time. I am still working and also drive a half hour one way to go to college 4 days a week. Now what do i do? Shame on you ford for not standing behind your products!
