1996 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan

Review

I got this car second hand from a relative who kept very detailed service records and followed the maintenance schedule religiously. The vehicle has roughly 118,000 highway driven miles and there are no outstanding recall issues. So, after 2 horrible experiences with a 1991 and a 1993, I foolishly purchased another Taurus with similar problems. Currently, the transmission is being overhauled after losing 4th gear. I was hoping it was the MLP sensor or something relatively benign, however why should I have expected anything less than another outrageous repair.

Favorite Features

Ride is relatively good and the interior layout is nice, albeit unattractive.

Suggested Improvements

All three of these vehicles had very major brake problems and two have had transmission failures. I can't believe my luck is this bad, so I am not very impressed with Ford's commitment to quality. Sorry, but my next vehicle will probably be a Honda.
