watch out for the fuel pump
By on_the_fence on
Vehicle1997 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Wagon
Review2.5 years into having this wagon
(bought with 30k miles) I was driving
down a busy street. Suddenly, no power.
Engine goes silent. Glide into a hotel
parking lot. Tried starting car. No go.
Car had been running fine up till now.
Towed to dealer (first major repair,
figured better safe than sorry). $500
bucks later, new fuel pump.
5 months later, fuel injectors clogged,
needs a complete tune up (76,000 miles
on it). Another $500.
Generally a good car, but starting to
worry, approaching 80,000 miles.
Best Features*LOTS* of room, for a wagon. Hauled all kinds o' junk in it. Plenty o' room for dual child car seats for my twin baby girls. Safe car to drive
Worst FeaturesFuel pump dies at around 70k, only 4 years old? Hmmm.... Also, tranny kinda clunky. But hey, no payments on it for a year, so I'll deal.
