1994 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Wagon


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
