Checking In

Just wanted to stop back and visit with my Ford brethren sine we turned in our Taurus X. We had previously owned a Freestyle, and we now have a Flex. I sure hope those that are here will consider a Flex when the time comes to sell their cars. Can't tell you how happy we are with ours. As much as we ...

Taurus X Goodies

I'm turning in my leased Taurus X and have some goodies up for grabs. All season floor mats, set of four in black Husky rear compartment liner, gray Sears Clam Shell {Extra Large} Thule Roof bars. I have sets to fit both the Freestyle and Taurus X but only one set (of 4) feet that attach to the side...

Re: Freestyle -> Taurus X -> Flex

The lease offer is pretty good but we will be buying this time. We plan to do a lot of traveling with this ride and we would take a hit on a lease.

Freestyle -> Taurus X -> Flex

Well folks time is up on our Taurus X lease and we are preparing to order a Flex tomorrow. We had a Freestyle and then our current Taurus X and we've loved them both. They have been great family trip vehicles that have allowed us to travel in comfort. While I've loved making up reasons to borrow eac...

Re: Must you do Front and Rear Brakes on an AWD at same time?

On our Freestyle we had the brakes replaced under the TSB. We went back and they told us that they had made a mistake and needed to replace the front and rear at the same time on AWD models. After some sorting out, the dealership agreed to pay for their mistake. According to Ford, both front and rea...

Re: Test drove T/X and Flex today

My sister in law just got a Flex so I was able to see and drive it side by side with our Taurus X. The have the same motor (Eco Boost is on the way and will offer better milage and better performance) so performance and gas milage should be about the same. Incidentally, our new X with 5,000 miles on...

Re: X - Roof Rack Cross Bars

Looks like the best solution to date has been posted. I just have to find a dealer with spare parts to make it work. On another note, I have a set of bars and clamps for the Freestyle that are no good to me any more, and I need to sell them, then swap over to this new set up. Any Freestyle owner tha...

Re: X - Roof Rack Cross Bars

I climbed up on the back buper to check things out, and discovered that I had been looking at this the wrong way. Nice to see someone else figured it out to.

Got our car back last night. It was a Rear wheel speed sensor that had failed.

Had to call to find out the car would be read by the end of the day.

Service isn't making a good impression but we really love the car.

Not a good start with it, eh? Good luck! No not at all. 300 miles and already in the shop. There is still room for forgiveness, but the dealership has not made a good first impression. I don't know if it's worth it, but I'm contemplating calling the salesman in the morning to state my displeasure. ...

Not off to a good start here. I took the car in for a drop off last night after work. They had the car all day, and hadn't called by 3:00, so I called them. They stated that they hadn't been able to figure it out, but thought that they could by the end of the day. I fear this translates into, shit, ...

We've had are Taurus X for less than a week and we've gotten a warning light (steady) for traction control and anti lock brakes.

Made an appointment for Friday.

Now that I've gotten the Taurus X, I see what your talking about. I examined the roof rails and it appears that the front bar and mounts that I had for the Freestyle will work, but the rear mount needs something that drops down into the channel and clamps on to it. It looks as if it was made to do t...
