3. I have just recently purchased a 1997 Ford Taurus SHO (1FALP54N3VA220364) and have become aware of the known failure of the Camshaft inside the motor. This is a serious problem and is starting to take its tolls on this particular car. There were only 20,000 of these cars made and the failure rate of this engine, due to the camshaft failure, is increasing at a drastic rate, as seen on the web site www.v8sho.com The cost of repairs for this catastrophic failure of the camshaft ranges from $5000 - $8000.

4. I would like Ford to issue a recall, as my car will inevitably become a victim to this known engine defect. This failure of my car would put me into financial difficulty due to the extreme cost of the repair to replace the camshaft.
