Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

Got a 7 or 8 year (my memory fails me) 100K miles plan for $1259 online. $600 less than the dealer quotes me Saturday when I brought it in for my oil change. Waiting for the paperwork in the mail.

Re: 2018 Ford Taurus SE

Ford sent me a $1000 personal rebate in the mail. Interesting concept.

OEM wood trim

Is there a budget friendly way to acquire OEM wood trim from a Limited or does this typically require buying entire interior panels and so on?

Buying the entire panels may be the cheapest.

The Ford parts naming is Trim Molding.

Passenger bezel trim for the piece above the glove box.

Re: 2011 Limited seats in 2016 SE

Thank you for sharing that tip!

That may have been an option but since my car is under warranty I decided to transfer the leather and keep everything except the leather stock.

Plus I found an upholstery person who could fit me in. Waiting for the second seat to be finished right now.

Re: 2011 Limited seats in 2016 SE

Delivered. Put in the rear. The passenger works but the airbag light stays on. I disconnected the negative battery lead first. Will take the passenger to an upholstery shop to have them swap the leather to the SE cloth seat. When they do a good job I will do the same with the driver.

Re: 2011 Limited seats in 2016 SE

Cool. Not sure how many cable trees are needed. I only have one I could see so far. The issue with the memory module is that it needs wiring for the heating controls also. Limited trim 2016s have SYNC3 with a touchscreen that also controls seat heat. Anyway: will know more once I get them. The seats...

Re: 2011 Limited seats in 2016 SE

Cool. I bought the 10-way seat which was memory. This may be an issue. I will probably either have to a) have someone bypass the wiring to the motors so nothing goes to the memory module or b) have the leather pulled from driver + passenger and installed on the current seats. Wait and see. Rear shou...

Re: 2011 Limited seats in 2016 SE

Never got a quote after I called, emailed and asked on eBay. Weird!

Called today. Submitted eBay offers. Waiting for seller to wrap freight into eBay invoice so I can pay.

Paid for the seats. One follow up is whether they are sending the entire rear or not.

DIY fun ahead! :mrgreen:

Re: 2011 Limited seats in 2016 SE

Waiting for a quote on the seats from a 2015 Taurus Limited (FL to NC freight). Aftermarket leather installation is so expensive that even with freight it may come out a lot cheaper. Plus a lot cheaper considering trading in / paying more insurance / paying more for ESP once the warranty runs out on...

Re: Five Hundred to Taurus

I have a 2016 Taurus SE and had a 2008 Taurus SEL. IMO the 2008 / 2009 Taurus / Sable is the way to go interior space wise. Sometimes they pop up with low mileage. I had a 2010 Avalon which was also extremely generous with interior space. Unfortunately Avalon’s are very expensive comparatively. As i...

Re: temp gauge

There is: you need to play around with the information on the center LED behind the steering wheel. I do not recall where exactly it is but it is there somewhere. Along with MPH, fuel left, trip A distance, trip B distance and so on.
