1995 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan

Review

Pros: Great in snow, reliable, comfortable, fast for its power rating, excellent ride & handling for base model, good looks, big trunk, solid, antilock brakes, 4-wheel disk brakes(one of the best features), fuel-door lock. Cons: Not enough power, gas mileage could be better(20city/23highway), a few rattles, cheap interior materials (dash, doors).

This car's base engine has been wonderful. I bought this car at 9,000 miles and now it has 113000 and I have put very little money into upkeep considering the amount of use. The speedometer went out, one rear window quit working and the windshield wiper fluid pump died. Lots of trouble with the hoses and had to replace the radiator. The cupholders are the worst design every. Fluid splashes up onto the stereo. It's been my only transportation for 8 years and it's never died on me.

Bought this car two years ago with a salvage title - it had been totaled. Milage was low, the price was right, and I needed a car. I figured I'd get a year of commuting out of it. Not only have I gotten my year, this is the car we use as our main vehicle. Our other 1995 Taurus is the wife's car which we bought the year before. Both cars have served well. They are not exciting but we can count on them. Gas Milage is not bad 24 general, 32 highway cruising. The only major expense so far has been the odometers and cables. If the odometer goes - replace the cable at the same time. Also, change transmission fluid at 40,000 or so.

Review

As far as its reliabilty and performance it has much to be desired. While on vacation, about 500 miles from home the ignition module went out and left us stranded. (there were lawsuits with Ford over this problem-some families were killed when this happened to them) Many other times, not far from home, especially on warm days I would get stranded after driving a relatively short distance, turning the car off. When I would try to start the car up again it would not start-but hours later it would start. After Ford put out a bulletin regarding this problem (fuel pump) we had that replaced.

Review

I have driven this car(3.8 L) for 8 years. After the head gasket recall mess (took 3 tries)a fuel injector replacement (due to leaking head gasket) and new motor mounts, it has been a commuter (30 mi/day). Given the mechanical history, I was test-driving replacements for this car, but 500 miles of highway driving have changed my opinion. This car's back seat exceeds the comfort of anything I have test-driven so far. I will keep this car for at least two more years, and if there's a new transmission required during that time, so be it. My only regret is that I don't have the station wagon.

Review

Picked up the tauras from an older lady with 75k, currently have a 100k. She broke it in gently, and I've been driving it like a racecar. No major probs other than the rear power windows don't function. Horror stories about tranny failures after 100k make me a little leary, especially with the hard driving I give it. I'm staying on top of preventive maintenance and its never hiccupped yet.

great price, reliable, not flashy

If you're buying one of these things in an attempt to be unique, try again. If you want to get where you're going in a hurry or even if you want to beat an old woman in a Buick off the start, think again. BUT, if you just want a nice big car that's cheap and easy to drive, here ya' go. After I totalled my MX-6 I wanted a BIG car. I bought the taurus w/ 50k miles on it, now it's got 80k. I've had to replace a radiator (standard on a ford). Other than that, it's great. I've learned to love my Taurus and to give a nod to all the retirees that I'm with in the slow lane.

Review

I bought the car w/60k miles. I drove it back and forth from Cal to Az twice monthly for 6 month plus up and down the Cal coast. The car handled well for it's size and did not start to give me problems until about 155K miles. Now the transmission and rear motor mounts are going and it's not worth the cost to repair. But I would say I was pleased overall with the handling, price and service I got from the vehicle.
