The Ford Taurus was a solid if
unspectacular vehicle for the first
90,000 miles. After that, all hell
quickly breaks loose: the transmission
goes, the electrical system turns into
a nightmare, and the engine slowly
falls apart. Ford? Never again.
bought this car with 86,000 miles from
a certified dealership. since then
i've replaced the transmission 4 times
and have had to replace the entire
engine. a truly poorly built car. the
only reason i still have it is because
i still owe money for the piece of
junk. DON'T BUY ONE. STAY AWAY FROM
FORDS ALL TOGETHER!!!
well, it's looks are average i guess.
if you like four doors. other than
that i guess the comfort. but it wont
be comfortable sitting in your garage
when it breaks down.
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
18-21 MPG city, 22-26 highway. Average
for 6 cyl in 94
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.
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
