Taurus : A Great Car That Falls Apart
By Ford Guy on


1990 Ford Taurus L 4dr Sedan


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.
