1992 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan


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.

Best Features

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

Worst Features

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.
