1998 Ford Taurus SHO SHO 4dr Sedan


Review

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?


Best Features

Great engine, great sound system, love the oval rear window and similar instrument panel cues. Split rear seat allows for carrying long items with the trunk closed. Exterior design curves flow beautifully with subtle shading.


Worst Features

6 disc CD changer has failed repeatedly.

Review

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!

1998 Ford Taurus SHO SHO 4dr Sedan


Review

Pretty fast for a sedan. Handles really well and an overall fun car to drive. The depreciation of the car is definitely in the buyers favor. This car was 30,000+ new and I bought the car for only 10,000 three years later.


Best Features

Chrome polished rims, sunroof, and easily and inexpensive to get the horsepower around 300hp.


Worst Features

They should keep making the car to give the consumer another option of the taurus
