1997 Ford Taurus G 4dr Sedan

Review

I purchased this car in April, 2001 with 28,186 miles. It now has 118,000+ miles in July of 2010. It's been mostly flawless. There have been a few repairs here and there, such as a brake line, ball joints, shocks, rotors, pads, etc, but most of this has been few and far between (minus the brakes!) and overall ownership cost has been very low. The brakes seem to be the only reoccurring problem. Rotors seem to get warped easily and I'm an easy braker. Seems they get replaced annually. I hate to sell this thing because it's so reliable but technically worth almost nothing. I don't want to sell a car that has been so reliable and will only get me back a couple grand at best.

Favorite Features

Smooth ride, low ownership cost, and overall reliability.

Suggested Improvements

Brakes wear quickly and wobble. Some electrical components failed (cruise control, rear defroster, etc). Some rust becoming apparent.
