Taurus : A Great Car That Falls Apart
By Ford Guy on
Vehicle1990 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan
ReviewThe '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 FeaturesMy 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 FeaturesThe '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.
