This was a great performing car. Fast, handled great and very comfortable. However, after 6 months, the transmission went out. I took it to a Ford dealer in to have it fixed. $2500. They said it would be guaranteed and covered at any Ford dealer in the US. Well, I moved to GA and the transmission went out again. Dealer said it was my fault for not checking the trans fluid. It was a manual and there was no way of checking it. I had it repaired again. $2500 again. 10 miles after the warranty was up, it went out again and they would not fix it unless I paid another $2500. I gave the car away at that point.

My brother bought his Ford Taurus SHO brand new in 1991.Since my brother is serving in the military between the Iraq war and his new duty station in Japan force him to give the SHO keys to me.Our experience with this car is the best ever not toyota or honda can come close to it.Regular maintance was most of the expenses.Right now our SHO has 160,000 miles and feels like new.At 140,000 new clutch,water pump,brakes,fuel pump,high performance exaust, alternator, timing belt, tires, paint job, tuned up, front bearings and oil changes. All this maintenance is regular for any type of car including imports. My final words excellent car built tough to last until 300,000 or more.

The Taurus SHO is a great car for
familys and fun to drive. If you get
snow in the winter, it has great
traction due to the front wheel drive.
It has a nearly bulletproof Yamaha
engine, but as for the rest of it,
it's a early 90's Ford, and may
require some TLC.
This car comes loaded from the
factory. Usually leather/cloth
combination seats, many of them have
automatic climate controls and most of
the options you would find on today's
sport sedans. Don't expect to get one
for the $1700 that this site suggests
as high end. A '91 SHO in decent shape
is probably going to run around $3000
or maybe a little bit more.

the 91 plus option is so mean looking,
it can kill. the engine is a 3.0 liter
yamaha. the 220 hp is nice, and @6800
ft pounds of tq. is quite exciting.
mine is the emerald green option which
i beleve only 900 were made. i have a
mazda transmission, all of which that
are on the car is stock. the slicer
rims are sleek, and sexy. the car is
so fun to drive, fast of course, when
road conditions permit. although SHOs
do have significant maintenence
required, but i beleive it is well

I have been a sho owner senice 1997
and it has been a love hate relateshoip
since day one. The car is one of the
fast best looking fun to drive cars on
the road. But on the other side of the
coin unless you enjoy turning your own
wreches you will be your meches best
friends. My car eats front brake like
they are made of paper. About once a
year I have a problem that I must take
to my mechice to fix(crank pos.
senor,clutch). But be side that it has
been a great car to own.
