1996 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this as my first car in may of 04 with 107k miles. Two years later, I had to junk it because it was not worth fixing this car every 2 or 3 months. It really is a shame too, because the interior design was amazing back in the day, and still is. I loved the nice touches such as digital climate controls. The '96 Taurus looked a little goofy compared to the previous gen, I got used to it and loved it eventually. The car was very roomy and comfortable, and easily seated 5, even 6 people. However, after spending $4k in repairs, and my mom doing the same for her '98 Sable, we moved on

Favorite Features

Interior, performance, and features literally eclipsed its German and Japanese competitors for a long time. It really was an amazing car back in the day. Roomy, fast, rear air vents, split fold rear seats, allow wheels, power everything with remote, amazing 7 speaker JBL sound system!

Suggested Improvements

Ford, build better engines and transmissions. Gas mileage was horrible. Needs to be more reliable.
