It seems that the Ford Taurus is well known for the exact problem we had with ours this morning. In fact, there is a recall because of this problem on several Taurus models, 2001 models and older to be exact. We are completely and utterly out of luck, as our car is a 2002 model. I looked online and was amazed by the number of people complaining of this problem in their 2002 models. I phoned Taurus, and spoke to a friendly fellow named Joe, who after a lot of typing in his computer and a phone call to our dealership (which Ian had already called) told me that there is nothing at all to be done, we are stuck to fix the problem without any help. I called Transport Canada to lodge a complaint, but they're closed right now because of time differences. I'll call again tomorrow. Even if we don't get any assistance fixing our car, I want to make sure that a lot of people know that I'm very unhappy.
Mary stripped during her "nap time" today. Shirt, pants, socks and diaper. Then she pissed all over her bedroom floor, chair, stuffed animals and bed. Yippee. Good thing she's so cute.
