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
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.
