To: The Ford Motor Company,

Subject: Ford Taurus SHO Engine Concern.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a Ford Taurus SHO owner, I currently own the following Vehicles:

  1. 1997 Ford Taurus SHO 3.4 V8 VIN #1FALP54N3VA135752
  2. 1996 Ford Taurus SHO 3.4 V8 VIN #1FALP54N6TA293256
  3. 1995 Ford Taurus SHO 3.0 V6 VIN #1FALP54Y1SA310893
  4. 1993 Ford Taurus SHO 3.2 V6 VIN #1FALP54P8PA327348
  5. 1998 Ford Explorer Sport VIN #1FMYU22X6WU038917

I have previously owned a total of 7 Taurus SHOs, making a grand total of 11. I have influenced 3 co-workers to purchase a Ford Taurus SHO as well. My father owned 2 SHOs, and currently owns a 2001 Ford Taurus. I am contemplating selling all of them and buying other Vehicles – NON – FORD.

I am looking to you for an answer to the question concerning the ongoing CAMSHAFT problem that is being experienced by an alarming number of SHO owners.

I would like FORD to provide me with some sort of warranty that will cover the cost of fixing the camshaft so as to avoid having to fix the broken valves, pistons and other affected pieces. I purchased these vehicle because I read about the ‘Sophisticated, world class performance’ that was written in the Ford Brochure. However, I am hurt by the disingenuous way The Ford Motor Company is treating this problem and it’s customers.

Please feel free to contact me at either the above phone numbers or by email.
