Poor Transmission Life Expectancy
By Pete on
Vehicle
1995 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan
Review
I bought this car with 44,600 mi on it. At 77,000 MI The transmission failed completely (Trans fluid not burned or discolored) and without any warning. I was driving at a steady 45 MPH and when I stepped on the gas the engine rpm increased, but the car didn't accelerate. After coasting to the side of the road, I found that the car wouldn't move in any gear. I spent $2400.00 on towing, and a trans rebuild. I am not impressed with this car. It reminds me of the junk GM built in the 70's. The trans shop reported that the splines were stripped from the main shaft. Also, the gas gauge only works sometimes. My 93 Pontiac Transport has 294,100 MI and no major repairs ever needed. (still runs well).
Favorite Features
Once inside and underway, car is fairly comfortable. Air and heat work good.
Suggested Improvements
Reliability of trans and gas gauge need improvement. Location of parking brake release lever is almost inaccessible when driver sits in car-needs to be relocated. Height of door opening needs to be about 2 in. taller-car is difficult for a tall person to get into or out of.
