My SHO is amazing! It is still comfortable, fast and handles great! 12 years later! It is going to be hard to part with this car!

Vehicle: 1996 Ford Taurus SHO 4dr Sedan

I know all Fords are not created equally but my SHO had 7500 miles on it when I bought it from the dealer and it currently has 74,000 on it. My only real problem was the cam shaft but nothing else other than normal maintenance. It is one of the best all round cars I've ever owned. Excellent comfort, outstanding performance, superb handling (NO oversteer!) and all the creature comfort features you could ask for. No tranny problems for me.

High-maintenance baby

Vehicle: 1996 Ford Taurus SHO 4dr Sedan

I really like the comfort, room, ride and performance of this car. It has enough room to easily seat 5, has good acceleration, handling, braking and top speed. Camshaft problem was a $700 pain to get welded, and the car is on the third transmission.
