1994 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought it with 56K miles on it 81K on it now and it ran strong for the first year The car always pulls to one side so I had the tires aligned Turned out the entire front end (suspension, swaybar, springs) were shot Replaced those and all the tires for around 1800 Car still pulls to one side <.< Replaced water pump, radiator (twice), a short of an exposed electrical bundle near the firewall, tranny went out at 75K due to a leak at the tranny pan. Unknowingly drove it bone dry in inner city traffic. Had a used one put in for 1500. Tranny pan still leaks. Leaks a quart of oil a month from the valve cover. Needs a new timing chain gasket. Interior rattles and squeaks enough to make a man crazy.


Best Features

Digital climate control is nice even though the buttons are all torn. Retractable antenna was great until it broke off. I like the radio controls for the stock tape deck next to the steering wheel. Moon roof is nice. Keyless entry works great until the passenger door lock stopped working. Engine is bullet proof. Never fails to start even in winter.


Worst Features

Improve the tranny. It shouldn't die before 100K.

Review

i bought this car with 59k, by 80k my
spedometer stoped working, the door
panels came off my doors in the back,
each window needed a new motor, the
radiator went, the power locks went, my
stock radio kept comming up with a
message "tele" on the screen and it
would stop working, it rusted
uncontrolabley, my windsheild washer
fliud contaner formed a hole in it, i
got a huge oil leak, and after fixing
all that i went to trade it in and by

toyota dealership (because i'll never

Review

The 94 has been fairly reliable. It has
the 3.8 litre engine. It is the LX
Model and has many nice luxury
features.

The head gasket blew at around 75,000
miles, which is a common trait of the
3.8 V6. Fortunately, Ford had extended
the warranty and repaired it at their
costs.

The body and interior have held up well
as the car is parked outside often. The
moon roof does leak though when it
rains. The lumbar support feature on
the drivers side seat no longer works.
Am also concerned about the
transmission as our 91 Taurus
transmission had to be replaced. (See
review.)


Best Features

Roomy. Comfortable leather seats, both dual power and leather wrapped steering wheel. Moon roof. 4 wheel disk brakes. Nice stereo. Dual air bags. Good crash test safety rating.


Worst Features

3.8 V6 engine and transmission reliability.

Review

This car is excellent and fun to
drive! It has 120,000 miles on it and
still runs like a BRAND NEW car! I
have had no problems whatsoever with
this car. I would not hesitate to
drive this car across country and back
right now. It has plenty of power to
pass anyone since it is very fast, and
the styling is very good looking! I
will ALWAYS drive a Ford and believe
they will last and are the best cars
on the market. All you people who
complain about your cars must not take
care of them because if you take car
of your car, it WILL last you forever!


Best Features

Power, handling, comfort, styling, reliability, etc


Worst Features

Maybe a little better gas milage... Keep up the good work in Detroit!

Review

With 130000 miles on it, it is still
solid. It has been reliable. And it's
peppy!
