Engine Dies at Highway Speed

1993 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan

Review

I was going 30 mph and the car totaly died. No steering, no brakes. No control of the car! Luckly, I was not in heavy traffic and did not crash. Morally, I am better off selling the two air bags, relatively new tires, battery, sterio, and getting $50 from a scrap yard too tow it away. If I was on the 405 freeway (Los Angeles), I most likely would be dead. I would not buy any Ford car based upon this engine. Your life or a kids life, is not worth taking a chance on this problematic series of Ford cars.

What was I expecting from a ford?

1993 Ford Taurus SHO 4dr Sedan

Review

Wow, i have so many mixed feelings about this car that i dont know where to begin. Yes, i loved the SHO when i first bought it. However, the constant are dissapointing. The transmision on the car has been replaced 3 times before 100k. The electrical system is a nightmare. The coolent system is in disrepair. I will never recomend a ford, unless you are prepared to be wrapped in thier Coccoon of Horrors.

1993 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Wagon

Review

Head gaskets (twice), 4 starters, 2 alternators, bad factory rotors, 2 radiators, brake lines, water pump, rack & tie rods the list goes on and on. But Fords are my mechanics favorite cars, and he has a new boat to prove it. Many rattles, sqeaks and noises. The repairs were many even when the car was new. I should have sold it years ago.

1993 Ford Taurus SHO 4dr Sedan

Review

The greatest car I ever had! Economical, room for a family, and some guts! $500 AC repair, 400 Fan repair only major repairs in life, to this point. Recently lost a throwout bearing which put grooves in the hub in the bell housing...argh! MAJOR problem, but fixing it anyway. The car is too good to let go of.

Very reliable and comfortable car. Front wheel drive for good handling in bad conditions.Fold down rear seats allow for versatility in moving cargo. Roomier than the newer body designed Tauruses. No major mechanical issues over the ten years owned.

The best car I ever owned.

1993 Ford Taurus SHO 4dr Sedan

Review

I purcased a 1993 SHO in Febuary of 99. The car was silver with gray leather interior and had every option except mo- onroof and cd player. It had 71,000 mil- es at time of purchase and 109k when I let it go. It would get 30 mpg on the h- iway when driven 70 mph and would accel- erate to its top speed of 140 mph with no vibration. The only thing that ever failed was the starter. I lost the car to a deer on the hiway at 70 mph. I was thankfully not hurt at all.

Oh the Horror

1993 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan

Review

So many repairs.Completely replaced AC. New brakes x3. Water pump, map sensor, two new axels for front, new tie rod end,new heater core, radiator fixed, speakers were actually dry rotted when I replaced them. Could have paid the car off at least twice for the repair bills. But mine has a total of 230,000 miles on it. Engine was replaced by previous owner at 100,000 miles, so never any problems there for me. Just everything else.

1993 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan

Review

Purchased the car for my daughter in 1999 with 70,000 miles on it based on safety and hoped-for reliability. Way wrong! Would have been better off spending more for a Toyota. The Taurus has been a money-pit. Fuel pump ($700), A/C ($1800), and on, and on. As my daughter kept saying, "it's dying again!". Worse yet, even though the car was already 7 years old when purchased, it's lost 75% of its cost over the past 3 years! She just got rear-ended (she's fine) and the car was totaled. I'm SO glad!
