96 Taurus -- Stylish Winner

1996 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan
Review
Overall design and build quality strong. OEM tires lasted 60,000 miles with regular rotation -- replaced with Yokohamas (OEM alloy wheels) -- the Yokohamas improve handling, braking markedly. Very few problems outside of routine maintenance. Fuel pump expired at 58,000 miles. Best car I've ever owned. May purchase an '04 since (a) the new Five Hundred/Montego may not fit in the garage and (b) the new small, mid-size car (Mazda 6 stretch) may be significantly smaller. Occasionally, must use mid-grade gas during Summer to prevent knocking on ethanol-enhanced gas.
Favorite Features
Oval dash, styling, radio controls, rear seat fold-down, heated mirrors, handling, road quiet. A very "high content" car for the money.
Suggested Improvements
The only improvement -- I wish this car had the Duratec 24V engine rather than the 12V Vulcan (although the late model Vulcan's I've rented seem to have more power and improved performance compared to the '96s).
