STRUCTURE: BODY

12/15/2017 - LEXINGTON, MA
AT LEAST THREE (3) TIMES WHEN I HAVE BEEN LOADING MY TRUNK, IV HAD THE TRUNK LID COME DOWN ON ME UNEXPECTEDLY. I WAS IN THE STAPLES PARKING LOT LAST NIGHT AROUND 8:00 PM IN BURLINGTON MA, I WAS LOADED IN MY NEW PRINTER WHICH I HAD BOUGHT AT STAPLES, WHEN SUDDENLY WITHOUT WARNING THE TRUNK LID LET GO AND CAME DOWN ON ME AND CONKED ME ON THE HEAD HARD. TEMPORARILY AFTER THE DIRECT HEAD HIT, I FELT DIZZY FOR A MINUTE, AND I COULD TASTE BLOOD TEMPORARILY FOR SEVERAL HOURS AFTERWARD. I FEEL OK NOW. THIS ALSO IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THIS HAS HAPPENED ON MY 2013 FORD TAURUS. I FEEL AS IF THIS IS A SAFETY HAZARD WHEN LOADING AND UNLOADING THE VEHICLE'S TRUNK. THE LID IS HELD UP BY A STRUT SYSTEM SIMILAR TO THAT OF THE HOOD. THE TRUNK LID HOLD OPEN OFTEN QUITS AFTER IT IS FULLY OPEN AND IN THE UPRIGHT POSITION. I FEEL THAT THIS IS DANGEROUS, THERE SHOULD BE AN INVESTIGATION AND A RECALL ON FORD TAURUS TRUNKS. THIS HAS SERIOUS POTENTIAL FOR A CONCUSSION, INTERNAL BLEEDING, SERIOUS INJURY ETC.

ENGINE

11/28/2017 - CHIPPEWA FALLS, WI
CAR WAS BROUGHT IN TO CHANGE THE SERPENTINE BELT AT 76,000 MILES. TECH NOTICED THAT THE WATER PUMP WAS LEAKING THROUGH THE WEEP HOLE AND SAID THAT IT NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. THIS JOB WAS QUOTED AT OVER $2000. HUNDREDS OF OTHER WATER PUMP FAILURES HAVE BEEN REPORTED, SOME AS EARLY AS 45,000 MILES, AND FORD REFUSES TO ISSUE A RECALL. THE PUMP FAILS AT THE MAIN BEARING AND SPEWS COOLANT INTO THE CRANKCASE WHICH KILLS THE ENGINE AND TOTALS THE CAR. THERE WAS NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, NO WARNING SIGNS WHATSOEVER. IF IT WERE NOT FOR A ROUTINE BELT CHANGE THIS ISSUE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN CAUGHT AND WOULD HAVE RESULTED IN A CATASTROPHIC FAILURE OF THE MOTOR. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE AS IT HAPPENS TO ALL DURATEC EQUIPPED FORD VEHICLES AND FORD REFUSES TO COVER THIS FAILURE UNDER A RECALL FOR THE DEFECTIVE WATER PUMP.
