Problems with Taurus
By RJ on
1994 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan
I purchased this car from my folks with just over 50k miles. Before I drove it home I had oil/filter service, tranny filter/oil changed and coolant flushed. In Medford OR as I started to move after a red light the tranny would not work. The tech told me a frequent problem beteen 50/60k. cost $2k. Then the A/C compressor quit, the cruise control works sometimes. Some minor oil and coolant leaks and back up light fussing. This car has been well maintained since being purchased new. I have never had this many problems with a car, half GM products and half Ford.
16 gal gas tank, large trunk space. Hood that stays open with out using a rod. Comfortable ride. Decent power. Radio controls on the dash.
A better oiling system for the tranny and better door seals that do not shrink and let in the whistles
