Love This Car
By chuck on
1998 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan
I purchased new in August 1997 to replace 2003 SHO. Fun to drive, a tenth of a second slower than SHO in 1/4 mile. Runs even with current 5.0 Mustangs. Looks great, gets a lot of attention. Have had no mechanical problems just regular maintenance. No service issues. Used as second vehicle. This was an early model year vehicle so it has dual exhaust and trim items cost reduced out in later 1968 SE and performance packages. It is on its third set of premium tires, maybe due to driver style. Never thought of selling it until I drove the new SHO but it will still be a tough decision.
Great handling and quick off the line. Runs smooth in normal driving. Starts instantly, good AC and audio system. Engine is tough and winds up quick.
Transmission could be beefed up as its does have some mushy shifts at higher RPM.
