1997 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Wagon

Review

Bought this wagon in 2001 with 85000 miles. I have since put on 46000 miles. Once had to have work done on the transmission with two solenoid valves replaced on the valve body. All tranny shops wanted to rebuild the whole thing for 1500/- and above. The local ford dealer did a good diagnosis and prescribed the right parts. I then went to a trans shop and gave them the diagnosis to fix for half the labor estimate of the dealer. In all about 400/- to fix. 300/- in parts.

Favorite Features

Roomy! used in three moves. Not bad for power and MPG. Nice V6 3.0. Great ride compared to a standard japanese. (excl. Lexus). Great roof rack. I like the bubble shape. GRreat with kids!

Suggested Improvements

Clearance too low. FORD you have to become more reliable! This is coming from an Automotive Engineer. This would be really the best in the US class if it became more reliable!
