It seems like everything that could have gone wrong on this car did. I replaced the oil pump the first week I owned the car. The transmission needed a rebuild, the engine had constant problems and even the front tie rods were falling apart. After $5000 it still didn't run and I gave up and ditched it. They are throw away cars and avoid them.

We bought this car with 76,000 miles on it. I have had no trouble at all. She runs like a dream. We average about 27 mpg on the road. The only thing I have had to do is change the plugs and oil. It only uses 1/3rd quart oil per 1000 miles.
Larger front door entrance. My 1987 Honda has more room up front than this car.
This has been a great car! Sure, it's
a stodge-mobile, but the purpose of a
car is to get from point A to point B,
which this car always does. The A/C
is dying, but it's been dying for the
past 6 years. I hope my next car
is the gem this has been. Some of the
design is poor, such as the one piece
bumpers which cost an outrageous sum to
Reliability, stodginess (don't have
to worry about anyone stealing the
fancy CD player I put into it); gas
mileage is great for a V6
Bumpers are one huge piece, which is
very expensive to replace.
I have a 91 taurus l. It has to be one of the worst cars ford has ever built. Since i got it, i have had nothing but problems with it. The transmission slips, the front end was done twice, and the paint is peeling away. Also, ive noticed on almost every taurus like mine, the fabric on the ceiling is ripping in the back. I will try not to ever buy a ford again.
