A Mid-Size Classic
By asylum111 on
1995 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan
I've had this car since Fall '95 when it had 12,500 miles on it. She'd been a program car and was still basically new. It now has 203,000 miles on it, and I wouldn't take anything for it. For an older V-6, the performance is excellent, both from a stop, and on the top end. Handling is not outstanding, but decent enough that I've had a lot of fun with it. Comfort is first- class, and I'd put it up against most any more expensive luxury car made in the mid-90s. Fuel economy is still good, and I get about 25 mpg in mixed driving. I have gotten low 32 or so on long trips, and all-city mpg is nothing to sneeze at at 19. She's had many minor problems, but nothing major.
Roomy, comfortable, safe, fun, fast, outstanding body integrity, front and side visibility, superior engine and transmission reliability
Bigger cup holders that are located somewhere other than next to the radio. Better, more reliable brakes. Smoother, more reliable suspension. Smoother ride. Better overall eliability, slightly better rear visibility
