1990 Ford Taurus Sedan L 4dr Sedan


Review

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.


Best Features

Power, reliable (at least it was), exterior body looks great, comfortable, great acceleration.


Worst Features

Gas mileage is terrible.

1990 Ford Taurus Sedan LX 4dr Sedan


Review

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.


Best Features

The all power interior,moon roof,six speaker premium sound system,leather interior,electronic cluster, power antenna,and the keyless intry.


Worst Features

The gas mileage, electrical system, and the engine style.

1990 Ford Taurus Sedan LX 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this vehicle used with 22,000
miles on it. At first it was a
pleasure to drive. The first two years
I put 250 miles a day driving to and
from work. Not long after I bought it
I was replacing parts. A new radiator.
A new air conditioning compressor. A
new muffler. And brakes -- never could
get them fixed properly. Electrical
problems left and right. Several wheel
boots that froze with winter ice and
snow -- that was a bummer. I understand
that this was a very bad year to buy a
Taurus.


Best Features

Lots of power features on the LX model. Very user friendly.


Worst Features

Better suspension. Rearend always feels mushy with people sitting in the rear seat. Standard 200 HP would have been better.

Review

Back in 1990 the Taurus was perhaps
the best in the "family car" class. I
ran the car over 200,000 miles with
surprisingly few problems. Nothing
flashy but it was a runner. Only
recurring problem was a TFI module
Ford would not recall. Skipped to
Honda Accord in 1998. Sorry Ford,
while you were ahead in 1990, by '98
you were not.


Best Features

Torque torque torque, great style, rugged (could handle a hail storm)


Worst Features

Make a high HP engine that gets good fuel economy for once!
