A truly great beater

by on
Vehicle: 1998 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan

I bought our 98 Taurus SE for $1200 2 years ago. Since then we have put 20,000 miles on it and done nothing but oil changes. Mileage is good, handles great for an American car, is comfortable and has a big trunk. I just wanted a cheap beater as a second car but it turned out to be a reliable daily driver.




Let there be heat!

Vehicle: 1998 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan

I have owned my car for three years now and for each year I have not had any heat, I have done work on the car to fix and it still won't work without changing the heater core. I have also had to change the battery twice and the alternator once. I changed my brakes and rotors twice and I am not a speed demon either, the upholstery falls apart and the car just is overall not a good buy! Don't Buy!




Good most of the time

Vehicle: 1998 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan

Overall, a good car. Most of the time works smoothly, but when something does go wrong it's usually expensive. Safety features provide all sorts of quirks.




All mighty taurus

Vehicle: 1998 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan

The car has been very good so far. I only had minor problems. Since it does have 90,000 miles this is normal for any car. It rides great and it is by far the most comfortable car i have ever driven. The only thing I can't stand about the car is the inaccurate fuel gauge. It seems to never tell me the right amount of fuel I have.

Very good ecoonomical car, however design in front for tall people not good. Because doors get into room of leg.

I have a '98 Ford Taurus that I have put over $2k in already! I just found out that the head gaskets need to be replaced which would run me another $1k! For only having 62,000 miles on my car, I shouldn't be having this many problems. I am very unhappy with the quality of this vehicle!
