1997 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan

Review

Short and sweet: 5 starters, 2 transmissions,HORRIBLE DIM headlights, electrical problems galore, high depreciation,air bags deployed during a 7mph fender bender. Total cost to a 2001 Audi = $30 touch up paint, to my taurus $3700!! (shattered windshield, and deployment caused other dash problems [horn electrical- wouldn't turn off], plus the bags needed replacement),low torque when needed, inadequate tuned RPM sensor, ousy factory warranty, only 36k tells me I bought crap when the factory won't even stand behind it, so much for listening to a friend.If you planning on driving that ford, consider something else instead.

Best Features

Short and Sweet - Roomy for tall people - Acceptable milage - Starts in cold weather (as long as the starters hold out), but I could change one in under 20 min. - comfy seats for long drives - quiet interior, good noise seals - decent handling at highway speeds

Worst Features

Value, value, value. Warranty. Improve "rumored" problems such as electrical and tranny. I think they have corrected the headlight problem, their next years selling was "now with brighter headlights".
