Simple honest poll here. If you have owned a Taurus that has had to go back for warranty work - answer yes. If you have owned a Taurus that has been reliable and has not needed warranty work - answer no. If you're never owned a Taurus - answer - N/A...
Owning one of anything and having problems with it is common. Owning one of something and assuming that ALL ones like it are the same-- bashing.
I have a Taurus PT24/7 PRO DS .40 pistol. I have run over 1200 rounds through it without a single issue. I would not assume that ALL Taurus's are malfunction-free-- any more I would assume that all Colts, Rugers, Chevy, Dodge etc are problem free. I know a guy with a brand new Kimber Solo that can't show it to me because its at Kimber- being FIXED. Cost does not equal quality any more than brand name does.
I WOULD buy another Taurus in a second. I love mine and would stake my life on it if needed.
