When it comes to reliability, my '91
Taurus passes with flying colors.
Almost 116,000 Miles later, this car
still runs like it's brand new.
Performance, more than adequete. When
you need the highway passing power, it
more than accomidates. Don't let it
fool you. For being a 3.0L 145 H.P.
engine, it's got some punch. The
interior can't get much more
comfortable. And with plenty of room,
This car makes a good highway cruiser.
I definitely recommend this car.
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

Reliability of 3.8 V6 engine and
transmission. Ford knows these are bad
and no longer make the 3.8 V6.
this car has been a gift from my
sister.the car has been repaired alot
of times since i've had it. The motor
and trans. are great, the susp. parts
wear out alot,power stearing,and
electical.It has been very reliable
other than this.All this I think a lot
is the fact that its an older veh.
Its comfortable and drive's good
needs to be easyer to get to parts
when working on it.
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
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.
