1996 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan

Review

I opted for this car when my Ford Tempo started to get sick. Figuring it was only $400, and needed front end work, along with body work...It was time to look at a new vehical. I'm shocked by the reviews of the taurus's on here. Our family has owned many taurus's and tempo's and have never had transmission problems. Read your manual for transmission care! If you do get a tranny rebuilt, have a shift kit installed...it will greatly improve the response of these transmissions. (The one i purchased has a shift kit on it for performance.) I now have 116k on it and it feels like 60k, looks like 70k. Definetly does not look like a 7 year old vehical.

Favorite Features

-3.0L 24-Valve DOHC V-6 Engine -Dual Exaust and it quiet growl -The front and back seat comfort and room -Center Councle Storage -Dual sunvisors -Heated Mirrors -Ford AX4N Transmission w/ shift kit -Just about everything

Suggested Improvements

-Power steering pump strength variates to much. Easy to get used to...but was annoying for the first month. -These cars seem to go out of allignment easy, as did the tempos in the family...fix the darned allignment problems. -The alloy wheels are pretty homely
