Boring Car!

1996 Ford Taurus Wagon GL 4dr Wagon

Review

I bought this car because a teacher of mine said that the insurance was extremely cheap. I can't believe I bought it. It is the most plain, boring car to drive. I've owned several cars, and this is the one I'd like to see go FAST! The gas mileage isn't very good for a V6, and the interior is quite ugly. Service engine light used to come on, but I hardly drive it since I got a different car. Styling is pretty neat (at least it was in '95 when the new style came out), BUT EVERYONE HAS A DAMN TAURUS!!!!

Review

This car has been a mixed experience. Bought it 3 years old, 32k miles. Wife's friend blew the engine a year later, idled too long on a 100F day. new engine runs better than the old one. Rear outboard seatbelt doesn't work all the time. Third row seat is very clever, good for kids. Lots of cargo capacity and better handling than a minivan.

Review

Door handles/panels/cup holder have been reattached several times. Seatbelts get stuck so they can't be pulled out or remain pulled out and won't go back. All inside plastic comes away from attachment anchors. Cd player- replaced. Shifting from park to drive now difficult. Sun roof has gotten stuck open, had automatic door locks fixed, can not always use remote entry, doors no longer lock when car is in drive. All plastic covers for seat bolts have broken off. Makes SLOPPY turns. Handles horribly in bad whether. Dented door closing it & got a dent from a carwash! Both side mirrors broke when knocked into.

Review

Purchased this car with 30,000 miles and now have 201,000. No major repairs were necessary, this vehicle still has same engine and transmission. I just kept the oil changed every 4,000 miles and serviced the transmission every 40K to 50K. Costs were reasonable for repairs. Highly recommend as a low cost means of good transportation.

Review

this is my second wagon(my first was a 93) yeah, the engine had a head gasket problem [covered by warrantee] and the tranny blew at 97 thou. it is always maintained on proper intervals, and after almost 7 years and 104,000 miles, it still looks great dispite being outdoors all these years and not a speck of rust! still runs and drives well on the open highway.
