Taurus Reborn at a price. Weak Trany
By First Taurus on
Vehicle1994 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan
ReviewBought it 01/99 with 42,000 miles and was well maintained previously. Water pump stated squealing 11/99, and of course it was two weeks after the 1 year waranty of the water pump replaced by the previous owner. Dealer wouldn't honor the waranty. Had problems with dealership ongoing. 01/00 - transmission had to be rebuilt at about 60,000 miles at over $1400. Common Taurus problem. Later Replaced the oil pan gasket (another common Taurus problem at $300). Over the last year and a half, no problems and has been reliable, although AC making noises.
Best FeaturesSun roof, Alloy rims, auto on/off headlights, roomy, and 20-25 mpg city,up to 34 mpg highway. Good 3.0 engine. Rides nice. Always starts.
Worst FeaturesLots of sqeaks and noises. Better transmission. Shouldn't have so many things go wrong the first 70,000 miles.
