  • Pros

    Commodious and ergonomically correct.

    Swoopy styling and fish-faced snout leaves us cold.

Great car I am the original owner and the car has exceeded my expectations in performance and lasting quality. As an engineer, I am still impressed with the power and comfort @ 111,000 miles.




Great car!

Vehicle: 1998 Ford Taurus SHO 4dr Sedan

This has been the best car I have ever owned. Overall even better than my vintage Corvette! It wants to GO! And yet is has great creature comforts and a killer sound system. Eventually I will have to move on from my car with 120,000 miles. Unfortunately, Ford has chosen to stop offering this great car. Where will I go now?

Watch for camshaft problems. Otherwise this is a fun car to drive. The V8 provides great power, especially over 50mph. Interior is roomy (I'm 6'3", so I should know). Trunk is very spacious - holds 4 sets of golf clubs. My SHO has over 125K miles on it and is still running like a champ (only major repair was getting the cams welded). If you are in the market for a SHO - get the cams welded!

I own a 1998 Windstar with a 3.8 liter V6. I know the history of these engines and the trannies. I've had 2 Tauruses that had the same AXOD trans. One of my Tauruses had a 3.8 liter engine that ble...
