This was my first car I bought it for
five thousand and had to put another
ten thousand into the car to keep it
on the road. It did survive several
road trips but on the last trip a
piston broke in the engine after I did
a routine oil change. If you like
repair bills this is the car for you.
The size of the car helped with
Computer died within thirteen years
and the engine mount broke, front
right spring collasped and maybe it
needed more attention on the design.
While the car was under warranty, the
rack and pinion steering had to be
replaced 3 times. It is in need of
another steering mechanism at this
time. For some reason, the dealership
service department cannot explain why
this keeps happening. Sensors go out
with no prior warning, and suspension
is terrible. I would never purchase
Automatic seat on driver's side, power
windows, interior trunk latch release.
Owned 5 years and 75K miles to 135K
(60K). Yamaha engine is strong,
smooth, and durable. Any older car
needs alternators, water pumps,
starters, belts, A/C compressors,
cooling system repairs, and has oil
leaks. Oh, and that "check engine"
light; replaced the computer.
No electrical bugs in mine. Auto
trans sometimes confused by power
downshifts. I like my grey
cloth/leather interior with no fake
wood trim, auto climate control, auto
headlites, cornering lites, and
premium sound, but wish it had a CD
player, and wish it had the FoMoCo
keypad entry system.
Replaced the struts when it was in
to have the steering rack replaced.
Engine, handling, looks (it is
pleasing,looks a little
more "purposful" than a standard
Taurus, but still "stealthy"),
interior with no fake wood, and those
adjustable seats. It is smooth,
strong, agile and fast. Fun to drive!
Ford, make another one. Use Lincoln
LS "sport" as base, but SHO meaner and
My taurus maybe 10 yrs old but it's
still as nice as it was the day I got
it. My gradparents bought one new
in '89. I always wanted one since, now
I do and it hasn't disapointed me. My
husband has a Saturn coupe and he's so
impressed with mine. He wants one. I
wanted to write this review about my
Taurus because I hear people say that
their not good cars. I can't speak for
the new Taurus because I don't have
one, and maybe their not as good as the
old ones, but to say that they are no
good is not true. I'm living proof, I
love my '93 Taurus and I will tell
people what a good car it is.
Power Seats, even some newer cars don't
have that option. Radio contorls next
to the steering wheel. The trunk
release, when you pull the lever the
trunk doesn't just unlock, it opens.
It's almost 11yrs. old so I'm going to
say maybe a newer model would be an
