1996 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan

Review

The car was beautiful on outside.
Disliked the interior radio console
area - difficult to replace stereo off
shelf with round configuration. Main
issue was with transmission. Had to
replace it at 50,000 miles ($1200);
replaced the converter seal at 66,000
miles ($500); and it was ready for
more transmission work when I traded
it in today ($500 trade in allowance
was very much worth it). Given # of
tranny problems I've read about, hard
to believe it was not a recall issue.

Best Features

Interior Comfort Heavy feel Good highway feel to it

Worst Features

Make a transmission that lasts more than 50,000 miles
