1997 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan

Review

I loved the comfort of the '90 version, so after driving a Protege around for four years, it was time to go back to comfort. The Taurus is solid for the $$$ you pay for it. I paid $11k for it in '99 (with 30,000 miles), versus an Accord which would have cost me $17k. At 117,000 miles now (Dec. '03), it's time to trade-in for another car (unlike our '92 Accord, which is going strong at 150,000 miles). As with my '90 Taurus, I am starting to experience reliability issues after 100,000 miles, and I fear that it will nickel and dime me to death. But, I got what I paid for, and am happy (and more comfortable) for the experience.

Best Features

Comfort. The seats are like sitting on a couch. I also like the unique exterior design of the '97.

Worst Features

Not nearly as reliable long-term as the Accord (but not nearly as expensive either).
