ENGINE

2/12/2017 - CEDAR RAPIDS, IA
TAKATA RECALL 2013 FORD TAURUS... IT'S ONLY FEBRUARY OF 2017 AND I HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM THREE DIFFERENT TIMES THIS YEAR ALONE. THE CAR STARTS VERY VERY ROUGH. HALF OF THE TIME IT DOESN'T START. THE VEHICLE HAS STALLED ON ME WHILE IN MOTION GOING DOWN CITY STREETS. IT HAS BEEN IN THE SHOP TWICE THIS YEAR TO REPAIR/FIND THE PROBLEM. STILL NO RESULTS. EVEN WHEN THE CAR DOES START I AM AFRAID TO DRIVE IT BECAUSE IT WILL AND HAS STALLED ON ME IN TRAFFIC. AUTOMOTIVE SHOP TOLD ME IT WAS A BAD FUEL PUMP RELAY. I PAID TO HAVE THAT REPLACED. NOT EVEN A WEEK LATER, ONLY SIX DAYS LATER THE CAR STALLS AGAIN. I TOOK IT BACK TO THE SHOP WHERE THEY GOT IT RUNNING AGAIN FOR FREE. BUT ONLY TEMPORARILY. COUPLE WEEKS LATER AT THE MOST AND I'M RIGHT BACK TO WHERE I STARTED. CAR WILL NOT START. IF IT DOES START IT WILL STALL IMMEDIATELY ONCE I AM IN MOTION. THIS VEHICLE IS ONLY THREE YEARS OLD AND THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR IT NOT BEING ON THE ROAD. THIS IS SAFETY HAZARD. I CANNOT COMFORTABLY DRIVE MY CAR TO AND FROM WORK WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT IT STALLING AND GETTING REAR-ENDED. IT WILL NOT BE A GOOD DAY WHEN THIS CAUSES AN ACCIDENT.
