1995 Ford Taurus Wagon GL 4dr Wagon


Review

I bought this car to deliver mail on a 90mi./day rural route. I've been using it for 3 1/2 years and have had no problems. With only the cost of maintenance to worry about, I can afford the gas no problem! (14.5 mi/gal delivering | 22 mi/gal driving around town) With only 145k miles on it, I I'll keep it going until she dies on me - and then I will buy the new generation Taurus.


Best Features

Size, look, comfort, and reliability.


Worst Features

A little more towing power and speed.

1995 Ford Taurus Wagon GL 4dr Wagon


Review

I think that this is a great little car for getting around in, but not necessarly for long trips. I got good gas mileage, and it always starts every time. The ignition does stay on sometimes even after I take the key out, but then it dings like I left the keys in so I just turn it off. This was my Mom's car and she only drove it about 3000 a year, and in the year that I've had it it's held up to two kids, a teen and a toddler and all my running around. At first when she bought it I was mad, but now I'm glad, its a great little family car, but I still need my bigger SUV or Mini Van for bigger outings.


Best Features

Dash controls,stereo controls by steering wheel, cargo cover and third row "rumble" seat, and gas mileage.


Worst Features

Better cup holders and more of them, larger glove box, automatic daytime running lights

Review

I bought my 1995 Taurus GL wagon in late 2000. The car was a fleet car and had 80K miles on it. Looking at having a vehicle that can hold all my mail and packages, I took one look at the Taurus wagon and knew it would haul anything. This car has been through it all. The car now has 137K miles on it and is coming to it's end. The 3.0 engine is still fairly strong, but the transmission is slipping and the front end (axle, bearings) is having alot of problems. But I paid $4,000 for it and put tons of mail route miles on it. If this car was never used on a mail route, I would suspect it lasting well into 200K miles.


Best Features

LOTS of cargo space. Fairly comfrtable ride. 3.0 engine is a gem.


Worst Features

Better electrical. Better front-ends. Too small gas tank.

1995 Ford Taurus Wagon LX 4dr Wagon


Review

Car belonged to my grandmother until the headgasket failed (as many Ford 3.8Ls do) at ~68000 miles. Coolant leaked into the crankcase... spun a bearing and threw a rod. I got the opportunity to replace the engine... Its a nice car when it is running. Seafoam Green is probably the ugliest color in the world though.


Best Features

Poorly Designed headgaskets that fail to account for the different expansion rates of cast iron and aluminum.


Worst Features

Buy the 3.8L from GM. The Buick designed 90 degree 3.8L V6 is infinitely better than the Ford...
