1994 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan


Review

The car has performed admirably and
has given us very little trouble. We
have had the car for nine years and
have had very few repairs done on it.
I highly recommend the Taurus.


Best Features

The drive ability. The ease of handling. The overall comfort.


Worst Features

Can not think of any.

1994 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan


Review

We bought this vehicle based on
the Consumer Reports review.

The Ford ran fine for a couple of years
and then the problems started. In the
past 8 years, we have replaced the
starter 4 times, the fuel pump 3-4
times, had the transmission worked on,
the radiator replaced, as well as one
head and head gaskets replaced. In
addition to many other mechanical
problems, such as the two rear power
windows failing.

Whatever you do, stay away from Ford's
3.8L V8 engine and transmission. The
3.0L is much better, and Ford no longer
makes the 3.8L engine. They were
problem prone from Day 1.


Best Features

Generally rides nice, especially on interstates.


Worst Features

Make the vehicle much more reliable to compete with Honda, Toyota, Nissan, etc.

Review

At first it was a nice roomy safe car,
then the transmission started going
anf all the radiator hoses got holes
in them. If I were you and wanted to
keep think car longer than a few
years, I wouldn't buy it!


Best Features

It's a comfy and roomy car.


Worst Features

Do something about that transmission!

Review

This was a best selling model, and the
sleak look and line of the 1994 Ford
Taurus still looks good. But my
vehicle simply did not stand the test
of time for reliability. 3
transmissions and steering column
issues later, I would not purchase
another Ford Taurus.

Review

My Taurus has 145000 miles (50000 of
them my own in the last 2 years) on it
and I have not experienced tranny
failure (although it does shift rather
eratically) or the head gasket problems
associated with the 3.8 V6. All of the
features still work except the fuel
door release. My car is reliable but
overall quality and design are poor
compared to the competition. The
cupholders in front of the stereo are
useless and the interior is flimsy. But
the seats are comfortable and I get 30
MPG on my frequent highway trips. Plus
the 3.8 V6 gives me plenty of passing
power!


Best Features

Lots of power. Good gas mileage. Fairly comfortable power seats. I am 6'3" and this is one car that I can be comfortable in! Looks boring but performs very well.


Worst Features

The tranny is weak even though it has never failed. The interior is poorly laid out. Brakes are mushy no matter what you do to fix them.
