1994 Ford Taurus Wagon LX 4dr Wagon


Review

purchased used with only 57K. Very roomy
and comfortable. Steering and suspension
built excellent for long interstae rides
- the driver does not tired, the front
passanger can read or sleep. Therefore
poor handling on twisty mountain roads:
you need to react earier than usual, but
I got used to it. I didn't like the
seats. but again no seat is comfortable
for everyone, my wife liked it. Head
gusket failed at 63K, a disgusting knock
in the engine emerged soon after that.
Starter died at 75K. Now (98K) there is
a problems with either driveaxle or
differential.

18-21 MPG city, 22-26 highway. Average
for 6 cyl in 94



Best Features

excellent interstride ride, roomy excellent brakes (my T has ABS) I heard they did improve the reliability. If so, I'll by a new one.


Worst Features

my boss, a colleague and three friends of mine had Tauruses 91-95 (both 3.0 and 3.8). Out of 6, 3 were pretty reliable and 3 gave lots of problems and made it to junkyard before 100K. It's a lottery

Review

This car is comfortable to ride in. It
can accommodate up to 8 people with the
foldout back seat. Things that tend to
break are more unusual. Starter motor
and ignition switch, window
buttons,windshield wiper motor. We did
have to have the engine replaced under
warranty because of a drip from the oil
compartment.
I like the car and find that it is
reliable. I'd buy the car again. I have
to say I don't like the redesign as much.


Best Features

Extra seat accommendation in the back. Fold-down seats to carry stuff. Comfort, safety rating.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage. Better electrical system. Better sharing by Ford of their mechanical information so repairs can be done outside of the dealership.

Review

1st year: Dealership ripped me off:
water pump, fuel pump, 2 starters
(defective parts), keyless entry DOA,
various hoses and the coin holder is
holding the previous owners pennies
hostage. Dealership had it longer than
I did the first month. 2nd year: Since
then: replaced radiator, 1 starter,
replaced 1 brake light, a/c died, radio
is losing it too, blown head gasket and
2 other leaks, at least one of us has
carbon monoxide poisening, tranny is
leaking, 6 mn. old radiator leaking.
Dealership has it now and for me to
repair it will turn it upside down!
Consumer reports did not say anything
about a defective head gasket!


Best Features

Good stuff: I love my big green machine! It's an easy ride, scares the hell out of people when I drive up behind them or pass them, great for camping and long haul trips and is great for hauling anything. I hate that I have to give it up to trade in for a car with less defects.


Worst Features

For whatever reason this 94 model has several EXPENSIVE and repetitive defects in parts: fuel pump and water pump, starters, head gasket and radiator. Even the replacements parts are defective! I bought at 53,000 and am ending it at 86,000 as a trade in.
