1990 Ford Taurus Sedan L 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car for well under what
the retail value is..and it was in
good shape. Well maintained, it has
not shown the slightest sign of
unreliability. It is my daily driver
and many times is forced to sit and
idle for long periods of time.


Best Features

Good steering and responsive acceleration. Could have come with more features, my car is the extreme base model..

1990 Ford Taurus Sedan GL 4dr Sedan


Review

The '90 Taurus was my first car, and I
beat the living crap out of it. I
would drive 60+mph on country dirt
roads, drive it across fields, and all
kinds of things you're not suppost to
do in a "family car." The amazing
thing was that even with the beating I
gave this car, it kept on going. Only
problems I ever had were minor things
that come w/ age. It was hard to part
w/ this beast of the suburbs, but I
needed something good for long trips,
and while I loved the Taurus, it's fuel
economy wasn't the greatest.

Review

The '86-'91 Ford Taurus starts life as
a great car. It has a good ride, seats
6, looks good inside and out, and is
relatively comfortable. It is also
really fun to drive for an affordable
family sedan. For the first 5 years
you will love it. However, after 5
years you will start to hate it. Things
start to make noise, alternators die
every 4 years, and other things go
wrong. My advise would be to buy a
Taurus with VERY low mileage. As long
as it isn't worn out, the '86-'91 Ford
Taurus is a great car. Just watch out
for the higher mileage vehicles.


Best Features

My favorite features of the '86-'91 Taurus are its quick throttle response and good handling. It is by no means a fast car, with 0 to 60 taking well over 10 seconds, although 30 to 60 comes in no time. Another good feature is that all of the controls of the Taurus are easy to use.


Worst Features

The '86-'91 Ford Taurus seriously lacks reliability. Although the engine will go over 185,000 miles without a major problem, the electrical system and drivetrain always have something wrong with them.
