Reliable if you take care of it. That car was awesome, bought used in '97. Nothing went wrong until few months ago. Great reliable car up until I left the lights on. Twice. Had to replace battery and alternator. Didn't fix problem, then I needed a map sensor, whatever that is. Still died on me. Then a completely different problem that same month; ignition module. Didnt help nor did a tune up. My fault, didn't change oil on time, drove on empty, never got transmission fluid flushed, etc. Great reliable car while it lasted. Only buy with low mileage.

A fast 5-speed car with great
handling with good high preformance car.
Bad for tranmission problems
because I put in 2 of them and the trans
when it breaks it leaks on the clutch
making it a replacment too. Hard on the
front drive axels being replaced about 3
Motor is still great and not
burning oil or knocking on startup.

This is one of the most interesing car
i have ever owned. When I first bought
my Taurus it was fun, reliable, clean
and all over nice. But six mouths later
that all changed. I ended up spending
close to $2000 to get my car fixed. And
ever since then my car has went down
hill. I love my car but i think it is
time for us to part.
