Review

got the car from my grandmother and had it for a year and took it to a auto shop, they told me i needed inner and outer tie-rod ends cv boots a wheel bearing and struts...the struts were the only thing that shouldve been replaced at that time they said. the tranny felt like it would drop every time i shifted too. also had horrible gas mileage but no reasonable explanation


Favorite Features

comfortable, just not while driving


Suggested Improvements

longer lasting brake system, gas mileage

Review

I bought this from a family member with 80,000 miles on it for $1,500. Has been nothing but trouble. I've spent much more than it's worth in repairs.


Favorite Features

Comfy seats.


Suggested Improvements

Wish it was more reliable.

Review

I bought this car in 2001. The first 2 years or so this car was good. After that everything went wrong. I bought this car for $2000 and now itís not even worth $500 probably. I have put over $1000 in this car in the past 2 months just to make the car run, not anything luxury. The radiator, water pump, fuel pump, computer, and pulley all went bad and a period of 1-2 months. I have probably been able to have the car about 2 weeks out of the past 2 months because this car is always in the shop. In fact I just got the car out of the shop about a week ago and it broke down on me again the SAME day. It went right back into the shop. This car is costing me more to fix it then I paid for the thing.


Favorite Features

Itís very comfortable. And I like the fact that you can fit three people in the front seat instead of 2 like most sedans.


Suggested Improvements

The cupholders should be somewhere else not sliding out from underneath the radio. You canít fit large cups in there. I hate it.

Review

I purchased a 1992 Taurus GL in may 2003, and I haven't really had any problems with it mechanically,which is a suprise, because it is nearing 150k but for those of us with bench seating in the front, I strongly reccommend a floor tray for beverages, because the drinks can overflow into your radio if you aren't careful. And while I love the strong visual styling, it has a poor fit and finish, and while general cowl is low, the plastic rattles constantly, but i only paid $1000, so if it fails i wont feel like its a great loss.


Favorite Features

power seat, space in cabin and trunk, 3.8 V6 Engine, coin organizer


Suggested Improvements

Ford-pick a better place to place a cupholder, one thats not in the way of the radio, and make the console standard!!!

Review

This is an OK value when it comes to used cars; that is, until the car reaches 70k miles or so and blows a head gasket. I have never had a car that has gone to pot with so few miles on it. It was pampered by my grandmother for many years before I got it, so I know that it was taken care of. Since I bought it, it has done nothing to take care of me. I sank nearly $500 into it before I my mechanic informed me that it would need a new head gasket (to the tune of $1500), not to mention developing transmission problems (which could cost an additional $1500). What a lemon! I'll certainly junk it before I sink twice as much as it's worth into repairing it.


Favorite Features

A nice ride and a large trunk make this a good car for highway trips.


Suggested Improvements

FORD, BUILD AN ENGINE THAT WORKS! I very much doubt that consumers will want to purchase any Ford products with such an unreliable engine as the 3.8L V6. I will never again make the same mistake.
