2000 mi   Transmission shifting poorly..was told at 1,450 miles I needed to let the transmission "learn" my driving habits more. They reset software to "ground zero" and I am starting from scratch and will see what happens. Wish me luck. 
4000   Transmission "slipped" or hard shifted when going from first to second gear at very slow speeds...dealer reflashed transmission and problem seemingly gone (I hope).

Ford Taurus in Indiana, United States
Sep 2009 - Apr 2015
3500 mi   Rear Sway bar bushing (inside ones )came loose and caused a thump/rattle in the rear. Dealer had to install completely new bar to repair and thought a redesign of this part was needed in the future. 
4372   Blind Spot on left side info "unavailable" until car is shut off several times. No updates available and no work performed under warranty 
15000   Chrome pealing from all four rear tail lamp lens that I found to be a known issue. Left car and parts were ordered and replaced under warranty. Dealership had car for one week. Also paid for wheel alignment and front end alignment too.  
24000   Intermittent grunt and grinding noise from brakes over last year. Found TSB and took back to Dealer for service. They said they were unaware of this TSB and got approval to perform TSB 11-5-15 on front brakes under warranty correcting this. 
28000   Right Front Door Outside Window Frame (black plastic) loose. Replaced molding AG1Z-5420554-AC under warranty SIRUS Radio disconnected, plus issues with paired phone. Main issue was with the expanded services of the optional "travel Link" that includes Weather 5 days, Weather Radar Map, Fuel Prices that would not re-activate on the GPS screen. Vehicle exterior lights were flickering, then inside lights when unlocked door opened. Power front seat had moved all the way forward, dash lights flickering too. When push button start (key-less) pushed engine would not start.

Ford Taurus in Maryland, United States
Dec 2009 - Jun 2012
2500 mi   Instrument Cluster problem. Numerous warning icons chimed simultaneously including service engine, ABS, Charging system, engine coolant temp, low tire press, etc. Entire cluster was replaced by manufacturer. 
4000   Original problem with instrument cluster continues and is now thought to be related to problem with cruise control module. Am waiting for replacement module. Began Lemon Law procedure. Problem has been a continuing one involving instrument cluster making bogus reports. Waiting now for new cruise control module thought to be the villain. Meanwhile Lemon Law has been initiated. 
7000   Ordered part, cruise control module, was replaced on 16 July. No recurring problems since that date. If none by 8 August will settle Lemon Law with Ford Co. by keeping car, asking for extended maintenance agreements. 
10000   Continuing problem of false warning lights and chimes, especially CEL. A couple of loose connectors were finally located during diagnostic testing and dealer consultation with factory engineers. Shortly after reporting what I had hoped would finally be a permanent fix my car was back to the dealer for the same problem. They have actually admitted that this set of problems would most likely never be fixed. 
15000   Ford engineer worked on this 18 month old problem. Head Up Display module was replaced. It appears to have now finally been fixed as there have been no recurrances of the check engine light or other warning signals. 
23000   We hear a short series of 7 or 8 knocks in the center of the console. Thought it might be in radio or in A/C 
Ford Taurus in Texas, United States
Nov 2009 - Sep 2011
2000 mi   Lens cover on radio very badly scratched on delivery. Dealer says this is a common issue and they have to replace the whole radio. They ordered a new radio to find that the lens on that was worse yet. Still not resolved. Squeak at low speeds/no speed while turning the wheel even the tiniest bit. Dealer cleaned and regreased grommet around steering column. Successful so far. 
4000   Horrible grinding noise with moderate brake pressure Transmission slip/hitch between 1st and second gear at very low speed and/or from a 'rolling' takeoff 
5000   Transmission reflash to correct low-speed slip shift Brake rotors resurfaced per TSB for intermittent grinding/thud. 
6000   Second application of the original TSB for front brake grinding/grunting. Failure to fix the problem. 
9000   New front brake TSB applied.
