I have recently purchased a used 2002 Ford Taurus and would like to install my Kenwood G707A mobile dual band radio in it.  I was recently told that people have experienced RFI problems and other assorted problems in relation to mobile radios in general in Taurus' and Mercury Sables.  Has anyone ever experienced this or heard of this before?  When I had this same radio installed in the trunk in my 1995 Chevy Beretta with the detachable face on the dashboard, I never had a problem.  I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN ANYONE GIVING ME FEEDBACK ON THIS BEFORE I DO THE INSTALLATION. Thanks, and...73 de KB1JXL

I've owned quite a few Ford products and I've never had a problem that wasn't fixable.

You didn't state which engine was in the Taurus, but if it is the one with COP (coil over plug) technology, and you intend to use HF eventually, you'll have to do some minor noise abatement, but that's about all.

The car has a 140 amp alternator (160 amp if it has an Instaclear windshield) which is plenty for any rig you might install.
