1994 Ford Taurus Sedan 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.


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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 this time it had 90k on my way to the toyota dealership (because i'll never by another ford again) the transmission went

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.)


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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!


Favorite Features

Power, handling, comfort, styling, reliability, etc


Suggested Improvements

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

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