1998 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan

Review

No major repairs since new now has over 77 thousand miles. 24V engine is very nice. Only a few things about the car that needs addressed. First of all the transmission, since day one, when you put the pedal down to pass someone the transmission is like "What?" and seems confused as whether to downshift or remain in the same gear. Then it jerks after it figures out what to do and finally downshifts. Secondly, it takes about 10 minutes upon initial startup before botton on the gear shift lever will push in. Lastly the bubble design makes rear head room tight and the trunk small. Other than these issues it has been a great car.

Best Features

24v Engine with dual exhaust. Engine reliability. The car has NO squeaks or rattles, I have been very suprised.

Worst Features

The bubble problem has already been fixed. Transmission needs work, expecially the decision making computer. Dont use such cheap plastic in the interior, such as the plastic oval that surrounds the radio and climate controls. Not much else.
