1993 Ford Taurus Sedan 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!


Best Features

Relative safety.


Worst Features

Everything, but especially reliability. Fix Or Repair Daily was the slogan for Ford's back in the 60's -- some things just don't change.

Review

Failed head gasket not covered by ford
(94-95' only recall), AC failed,
Susension failed, ride ok, other than
driver seat the car is not confortable
for others. NO power with 3.8L engine
dog!! Many typical electrical
conection failure, common with my 87'
Taurus 6 years later and still not
quaulity :(


Best Features

Style highway ride, climate control.


Worst Features

Quality needs to be job 1, and more reliable components. Car today should last longer than 100K miles. Other can do why not FORD?

Review

I had over 10 repairs from 1993 to 1996
while the car was under warrenty.
Since then the car has run like a charm.
The only negatives, the electric window
on the back left passenger door stopped
working and the air conditioning broke
around 70,000 miles. Otherwise, going
strong at 104,000 miles.


Best Features

Roomy for tall drivers.


Worst Features

Better pick up.

Review

Great mileage & very reliable. Have
not had a major problem and currently
running on 150,000 miles of travel.
Would love to have another.
Recent problems, past month; new
radiator, muffler, battery, and tune
up. Small brake work. Spent $550 to fix
all. Air conditioner in working order
but vent works on upper only.


Best Features

Mileage, comfort, and safety.

Review

I bought one in thinking I was getting
a good car with only 60,000 miles on it
but had nothing but problems. Less
than 500 miles after I bouth it my air
conditioner went out. Then under 10,000
the motor blew a Head gasket. I have
heard blown head gaskets are common in
the 3.8L motors. My mother in law owns
a 96' one with a 3.0 and has been
having better luck with hers. Also my
transmission I think was starting to
slip.


Best Features

Roomy and Comfy. I like the way it drived....just too many mach. probs.


Worst Features

3.0 maybe ok. 3.8 forget it
