1997 Ford Taurus Wagon GL 4dr Wagon
The day before Thanksgiving, the
transmission died. Going to sell mine
(69,500 miles - sole owner) then
promptly get rid of my Windstar before
something else goes wrong there, too
(faulty "Check Engine" sensor twice in
the first 24,000 miles, and a bum power
steering hose). Wouldn't be half as
mad at Ford if their service
departments charged something close to
reality on repairs. Although
advertised as needing only regular
grade gas, this sucker pings all day

2.5 years into having this wagon
(bought with 30k miles) I was driving
down a busy street. Suddenly, no power.
Engine goes silent. Glide into a hotel
parking lot. Tried starting car. No go.
Car had been running fine up till now.
Towed to dealer (first major repair,
figured better safe than sorry). $500
bucks later, new fuel pump.
5 months later, fuel injectors clogged,
needs a complete tune up (76,000 miles
on it). Another $500.
Generally a good car, but starting to
worry, approaching 80,000 miles.
