Yes my problem was years ago, but I still have friends that buy Detroit iron.
Quality is better I will admit but not is not enough IMO.

I like to keep cars longer than 4 years where my friends are trading them in before they hit that 50k mile sweat spot.

Driving with a friend last year in his brand new top-o-line Tahoe with every option and at a stoplight, engine dies.
Seems the electric seat severed some important wires and everything locked! Steering wheel everything, tow truck driver
couldn’t even load it, had to have a Ford mech come out.

Happened several more times before he had it declared a lemon under “CA Lemon Law”, he drives a Toyota Sequoia now.

I really hate to bag on US automakers, but dammit, get it right Detroit! You have the ability to do so!

Good luck with your Taurus! I sold mine to some poor shmo right after the tran was replaced.
