2005 Ford TAURUS Electrical System Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID695545
 Internal NHTSA #10244327
 Model Year2005
 File date29/09/08
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemAn electrical fire started in the dashboard to the left of the steering wheel in my 2005 ford taurus car on monday september 29, 2008 at 6:30am. Within 5 minutes of smelling the smoke my entire car burned to the ground. I complained to ford about this happening and they were not willing to do anything. They do not stand behind their vehicles at all. The worst part is that i still have 12 months of payments on the car and they still want their money. Ford vehicles are so out of favor with the public that the insurance company is only offering me $8000. 00 for the car and i paid $30,000. 00 in 2005 for it. This leaves me with insufficient funds to buy another 2005 full size sedan. Ford has indicated that i did not miss any recalls. I am not sure if there are others out there with similar complaints...
