    We were told by Lawyer because our son did not expire and was not critically injured in the accident there was nothing we could do in fact Ford didn't even offer to replace the car. We still have the other car to be just six years old it be coming a P.O.S. every day we drive it. It is eating up alternators and water pumps

    Our family owned two 2006 Ford Tauruses one black and one green. In 2007 we started having the problem of the accelerator sticking in our green Taurus we took the car to a Ford dealership close to us and because they couldn't reproduce the sticking of the accelerator they calmed nothing was wrong charge us a fee and gave us back the car. It did it again two weeks later again we took it to the same dealership this time they replaced some speed control module. Well two Months later I'm at work my son calls me crying he has rolled this car; I asked what happened he said "the accelerator stuck" and when he tried steering towards the shoulder the car started flipping it rolled three times Right front to left rear.

    I have an 04 FFV Taurus that does this. The problems started after I had the Ford Dealer adjust the engine controls so it ran better on E85. Intermittently, the engine will not return to idle while the car is moving, but will return to idle once the car has stopped. While moving the car will not coast. It will maintain speed or accelerate slightly. The higher the cars speed the higher the engine revs when I put it into neutral. I have never had difficulty controlling the car, but it has hurt my fuel efficiency and increased wear on my brakes.

    Sounds like a fairly similar problem. Next time you're at the garage, you might have your mechanic check that cruise control cable.
