1999 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Wagon


Review

Well at first I was somewhat hesitant to purchase this vehicle.But as a few people have said that the ride and the comfort was much nicer then I had expected. I just like to say that it is one smart buy. And I spent half the money I was expecting to spend.The Audio system is a little poor, but that is a quick fix. Other then that it has been a great car for camping, going to the beach as well just cruising.


Favorite Features

The interior is very roomy and the ride is nice.


Suggested Improvements

non really just the sound system.

1999 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan


Review

Every Taurus I've ever owned, the transmission drops before 100,000 miles. I had a 91 and the trans dropped at 98,000. Now my 99 trnas dropped at 70,000. I've heard rumors that the Taurus is known for having bad trans by mechanics. But I love evrything eles about. No other problems.


Favorite Features

I love the contour of the body, the large trunk space and the fact that you can access the trunk from the inside.

Review

I got this as my first car, and am completely in love with it. It has 75K on it, and the only fixing I had to do was when I got into a fender bender( it held up great)


Favorite Features

Automatic power seats are great!!!


Suggested Improvements

Nothing really, You get what you pay for

Review

By the time the car was five years old with 63k miles, I had had the transmission rebuilt, did the brakes twice myself, replaced several suspension components trying to fix dangerous at the limit handling characteristics, installed several new electrical items including power window motors and power seat switches, and several mechanics were chasing a check engine problem. All this and 22 mpg. So, I traded it this weekend for a '02 Subaru. It handles, shifts, and stops like a car should. No more Fords for me.


Favorite Features

Cheap transportation.


Suggested Improvements

Improve total engineering and quality picture. A five year old car with 63k on it should not require a transmission rebuild, and two brake jobs. Emergency handling is dangerous!
