1997 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Wagon
Review
2.5 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.
Favorite 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
Suggested Improvements
Fuel 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.
