Taurus V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles

I was driving down a hill on 10/13/17 at 1019am, the steering locked in my 2014 ford Taurus I was unable to steer the vehicle, I had no control. I ended up going into oncoming traffic struck a guardrail and spun around ending up heading back in the opposite direction I was traveling in. Thankfully there was no car coming the other way, the vehicle was not drivable and it ended up being a total loss. I called Ford to report the issue and I was told there was no known issue about steering locking.

Taurus SEL

  • Automatic transmission
  • 52,195 miles

Problem began intermittently, only occurring a few times a day during a turn. This catches you extremely off-guard when part way through a turn - the force required to turn the wheel changes from easy (power assist) to difficult (manual) to power again unpredictably. This slowly increased over several weeks to being essentially a manual steering car.

Have an appointment next week at the dealership to diagnose, but from everything I see on the internet, will require a full replacement assembly just under $2,000 (Canadian) for the part (not including labor).

Easy to find out about the recall for this problem in this car for years 2011 - 2013. Doesn't appear like it was actually fixed in the 2014.

Taurus Limited 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 126,234 miles

Power steering failed after starting car and driving 40 miles. Returned after stopping for 10 minutes and restarting the car it returned. Was driving down 1-35 on it decided to go away while driving at 75MPH. Speed helped in this situation as it is easier at high speeds, but was very noticeable.
