Re: Freestyle Roof Rails on Taurus X?

I tried the modified system as posted by lee in the pictures. Exact same set up, but, I am experiencing a lot of wind howl with the round bars, at 50 mph and up. Have others experienced wind how with what ever system you have? Is there a specific location the bars need to be? Does the ski box need ...

Re: Freestyle Roof Rails on Taurus X?

HI - this may be peripherally related to your question, but if you're looking to mount a box/ski rack/etc on your Freestyle rails you can see the hack I have used for many years to attach a large Yakima Rocketbox on our 2008 T-X. Pictures are on my Flickr page here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/lee...

Re: Second row bench seat stuck

Yes, same problem with 2008 Taurus-X Limited. Have gotten this fixed a couple times under warranty, each time the dealer telling me it must be jammed due to a stone, toy, etc - i.e. blame the kids! We often need to lower the second row seat to transport large items so this is kinda a pain. Too bad, ...

Factory Pictures

This probably falls in the "no longer relevent" category, but I ran across some interesting pics of Ford's Chicago Assembly Plant on Flickr with several shots of T-X's in various stages of completion:

Re: X - Roof Rack Cross Bars

We took the Yakima roof rack off our 96 Explorer and using aluminum and screws purchased from Home Depot (or any hardware store) have attached to our 2008 Taurus-X AWD Limited. The rack sits on Yakima Landing Pad #1 and the aluminum plates are used to mate the Landing Pad to the T-X rails. You can s...

Scheduled Maintenance - Dealer or Other?

After many false starts we finally found and purchased a 2008 Taurus-X in Sept 2008. Its almost time for the first scheduled service. Couple questions: 1. Is taking the T-X to the dealer a must for these maintenance visits? We have a local Shell station we used for many many years (MA-Shell) for our...

Ford Not Taking Orders for 2008 T-X?

We want to special order Taurus-X, but our local (Sunnyvale CA) dealer told us today that Ford is not currently taking orders for the Taurus-X until the 2009s are available. Is this really true? No dealers have the combination of options we want and we've always customer ordered, so shouldn't be a p...
