Re: Trade in/sale value for 2008 TX?

If you're serious, let me know! I'm looking at trading it in within the next month or two. Fixing the blend door is the only repair I'm aware of it definitely needing, although it has its share of decade old creaks and crumbs from traveling with the kids. (Makes clicking sound if you switch the AC v...

Trade in/sale value for 2008 TX?

I'm planning to trade in my 2008 TX AWD SEL (with DVD player package) before the end of the year. It has a few issues (passenger side heated seat doesn't work, tear in one of the leather seats, I am pretty sure the blend door actuator needs to be replaced), but nothing too serious, and is low miles ...

Re: Sirius radio stations not added after channel line-up ch

Nevermind. A "Refresh" signal from the Sirius web site did the trick. (I've not historically had much luck with the Refresh signal when things weren't going well, so I was slow to getting around to trying it.)

Sirius radio stations not added after channel line-up change

I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but Sirius updated their channel line-up a week or two ago and my radio did not add the channels correctly. When I turned on the radio around the time of the upgrade, the display indicated it was updating. The channel names of existing channels changed, ...

Re: Ford Taurus X Emissions Recall

I got the letter at the beginning of the year, but haven't gotten it taken care of. With no action, I still passed PA emissions inspection in April. It is not especially convenient for me to get to the nearest dealer, so I figured I'd just take it in if it failed. Otherwise I'll get it taken care of...

Yikes. Sounds expensive.

I haven't seen a puddle, but at the slow rate it is leaking, I'm not sure I'd notice.

Small brake fluid leak? (light on)

About 3 times in the last 2 years, my brake fluid light has come on. I checked under the hood, and the brake fluid was slightly below the "min" line. I topped off the brake fluid and things went fine for a months and months (and the car passed inspection after, so the brake wear seems fine) with no ...

Will full size tire/rim fit in the spare tire well?

I got a flat tire after running over something in the road in the first 1/3 of an 8 hour drive a couple of days ago.... luckily it was daytime and I found a place to get the tire patched without much trouble, but I wouldn't have been able to drive hundreds more miles on the interstate on the small s...

Re: Weatherstrip, rear passenger-side door sill 2008 Taurus

Mine fell about half-way off this weekend in the middle of a 9 hour drive... I popped it back in and it seems to be holding up OK. Let us know how much it ends up costing. I was thinking about throwing some glue or tape on to keep it from popping off again. It popped back in fairly well once I figur...

Re: Eligible for Free Sirius Trial on my used TX

It's the integration of Sirius with the Ford sync system that may be worth the $$ to some folks. Pretty seamless with text on the display & steering wheel controls is probably worth a few bucks a month for many people. iHeartRadio, HD Tuner, Pandora and iPhone are decent substitutes, but if you ain...

Re: Floor mats

The OEM rubber floor mats were considerably cheaper than the Weather Tech ones...

Ended up ordering a third row floor mat from some other company that I can't remember the name of.

Re: Floor mats

I was able to find new rubber T-X floormats made by Ford on Ebay... not sure what kind of luck you'll have finding the carpeted ones, but the rubber ones are more durable anyway.
