Absolute Best Car Ever
By Brooklyn on
1997 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan
There is absolutely no way that a vehicle could ever score perfect on any single spec, but this car has pulled some pretty crazy stunts for me and has never had any problems internally. Excellent take off, excellent gas mileage compared to more recent cars, and a crap load of interior space; perfect for trips, sonce I've been on plenty with it. My next vehicle will be a 97 Ford Taurus and I will cry when this one explodes or something in a few years.
360's on Route 7 are fairly easy going 60 mph, great suspension, won't kill you to back into a hydrant every now and then, very safe in an accident. I've gotten pummelled more than twice at over 20 mph and 40 mph and nothing but exterior damage was done. Haven't even taken it to a shop: EVER.
Kind of looks like an ugly bug, am not crazy about the old-people look of the exterior. Tail lights are a pain to redo.
