Don't be so hard on Taurus
By Lynn Daczyk on
Vehicle
1997 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan
Review
This has been a good utility and trip vehicle for me. Normal maintenance. Worst problem was blowing a freeze plug at 130,000 miles and, with my not watching the temp gauge, ruined the engine. Replacement was reasonable (lucky me, on a trip!) and it's been running fine, now at 150,000. Gas mileage is 26 in the city, 30 on trips. Doesn't use oil.
Favorite Features
My standards aren't that high; seeing I run my cars "into the ground". It handles great in winter conditions. I also love that it doesn't rust out!
Suggested Improvements
Wiper fluid mechanism responsiveness.

Gas mileage is 26 in the city, How do you get 26 in the city? I am always visiting the gas station almost everyday. Saturday I put $20.00 worth of fuel and as of last night its on the red line and today is Monday and I have to get fuel for my car again. My cars city mileage is I believe 21 mpg.
