Review

I got a great deal on mine since my brother is a car salesman. I paid $1000 for it with only 63,000 miles on it! Although the a/c never worked I love this car. Built like a tank. The only problems I experienced were an radiator leak, electrical issues and a hole in the exhaust (regular wear). I had mechanic friends so repairs were cheap for me. I recently fell victim to 2 accidents in 2 months. Both times I was hit by senior men who shouldn't be driving. My car now has significant cosmetic damage and will cost more than it's worth to fix so I'm trading it in for a '94 Taurus GL sedan ::tear tear:: I would buy it again if given the opportunity!


Best Features

Radio controls on the dash, storage compartment in trunk, incredibly roomy and comfortable!


Worst Features

Poor electrical system.

Review

Bought this car brand new in Jan 1992
and ran it for over 188,000. Just sold
it (Dec 2003) to someone at work and
car is still in great condition body
and mechanically. Has the 3.0 liter v-
6 that is virtually indestructible as
long as you maintain it. Original
transmission finally went out at
160,000. Only minor rust on bottom of
car's tailgate and it was used in the
Chicago area the entire time. Only
sold it because of great deal on new
SUV. I will miss it, but it will give
good use to new owners.


Best Features

3.0 liter V6 still peppy at 188,000 miles, rides good, great for hauling kids, groceries and large items as rear seats fold down.


Worst Features

Hub cabs attached with screws and over the time I had it, probably replaced 5 hub caps because mechanics would not put screws back in or fasteners in wheel rim that held screws would break.

Review

Car starts flawlessly every time, the
heater warms up fast. The 3.0 liter,
automatic accelerates and shifts swift
and smooth and the ride is quiet and
smooth as well. There is some roll
when cornering hard and fast, what
you'd expect from a wagon. Otherwise
handling is very good, especially in
panic moves/stops. Braking is very
good.

Interior is roomy (ligitimately can
fit 8 passengers), egronomics are
excellent, seats are comfortable,
original sound system is very good.

Reliability is excellent. Have
serviced regularly, as suggested, with
no problems. Replaced tires/wheel
alignment at 57000 mi., front pads at
62000 mi. I am extremely satisfied.


Best Features

*Sleek, sporty appearance, very good handling. *Back seat and 3rd seat fold down flush for moving packages, boxes, furniture, equipment, etc. *3rd seat is fun for the kids, great for drive-in movies, "tailgating" and picnics.


Worst Features

Car would be more sporty w/ console and bucket seats.Otherwise, car is a great family and work vehicle w/ plenty of room!

Review

I have two of these SW from 1992. Both
have leaking steering. One has a dead
air conditioner. One has a failing
transmission. The inadequate air
conditioning will freeze you on a cool
morning and leave you sweating by 11:00
am. The rear defroster connection wires
on both cars failed. Both have barely
adequate cooling systems. AC fogs
windows exactly where you need to look
to see the side mirrors.


Best Features

Cargo carrying ability. Appearance. Convenience features.


Worst Features

Whether a Ford Fairmont or the later Taurus, Ford needs to figure out how to make a steering system that won't quit.

Review

We purchased this car for our college
bound daughter, within a week it
stranded her: ablown fuse with no
known cause. Finally get it back,
stranded her again, blown head gasket,
leaking radiator, and now the tranny is
acting up too. A knowledgible mechanic
told to get rid of these before they
hit 120k, ours has 101k. I'm looking
at a $1000 repair bill on acar that I
paid $500 too much for.


Best Features

We like all the bells and whistles, power everything, roomy, safe.


Worst Features

Make the head gaskets last longer, beef up the tranny. Why can't an american car go as far as a Honda or Toyota? Why can't a person buy an american car with 101k and get another 101k out of it?
