1991 Ford Taurus Wagon GL 4dr Wagon


Review

Basically a good car. Hatch lid came
from factory misfitted to car and
cannot be corrected. Air conditioner
and head gaskets replaced at 55,000
miles, but otherwise average on repair.


Best Features

Holds plenty of cargo. Very fast on takeoff - plenty of power with the 3.8 engine.


Worst Features

Better ride and gas mileage would be quite an improvement.

1991 Ford Taurus Wagon LX 4dr Wagon


Review

Overall this is is a very comfortable
car and has many nice luxury features.
Interior and exterior have held up
well, car parked outside mostly.

Reliabilty is bad. Bought car with
76,000 miles. Transmision went out at
79,000 miles. Head gasket blew shortly
thereafter. Both are known defects for
this engine and transmission.

Our newest car is now a Saturn. (see
review)


Best Features

Roomy, comfortable ride. Leather bucket seats with dual electric controls. Leather wrapped steering wheel. Center console shifter. Automatic climate control. Third rear seat. Plenty of hauling capacity.


Worst Features

Reliability of 3.8 V6 engine and transmission. Ford knows these are bad and no longer make the 3.8 V6.

1991 Ford Taurus Wagon GL 4dr Wagon


Review

We bought this car hoping that it
would be a reliable family car, and
from the very beginning this car has
given us nothing but problems. Every
month something goes wrong. We have
had to in two years replace just about
every major part (minus the
transmission) of the car. If you want
a car that will run well and be
reliable take your money somewhere
else. Ford Taurus's are terrible
cars. I will never buy a midsize ford
again.

1991 Ford Taurus Wagon L 4dr Wagon


Review

I bought this car over 8 years ago, and
it has always exceeded my expectations
(now over 202k miles). It's been a
great family wagon, with the 3rd seat,
higher than expected mileage (about 27
to 29 mpg, and great value. The
repairs have been minimal, so we've
saved a lot of money over this long
haul!

1991 Ford Taurus Wagon GL 4dr Wagon


Review

I've noticed most of the good reviews
are in regards to the SHO. SHO may be
a better car; I had a '91 GL Wagon I
bought in '96 with 65K on it. I never
put more than 6K on it per year. I
couldn't, it was never out of the
shop. Whenever I told a mechanic I had
a Taurus, they'd reply, "I'm sorry to
hear that."

There was no end of trouble with
suspension, alignment, and sealed
bearings. The alignment was so bad the
tires went bald on a 500 mile trip and
nearly killed me. After the second
time the transmission went out I'd had
enough. If you get this car, drive it
straight to hell, because that's where
it belongs.


Best Features

The comfortable interior makes Taurus a favorite of rental car companies.


Worst Features

Victim compensation to owners and former owners.
